University of Auckland

Since its founding in 1883, the University of Auckland has grown to become New Zealand's flagship, research-led university, known for the excellence of its teaching, its research, and its service to local, national and international communities.

We have more than 40,000 students of whom 11,000 are postgraduate and 6,000 are international.  Our research programmes range across all disciplines and we are world leaders in such fields as cancer drug development, inductive (wireless) power transfer and computational physiology.

Our challenge is to help to generate ideas that will benefit society, and to educate and train people to work in fields where they will be valued both for their specialised knowledge, and for their ability to research, communicate and solve problems.
