The location for education, Auckland has gained an impressive and growing reputation as the ‘go-to’ place for overseas students seeking to gain proficiency in English language skills. There are approximately 50 NZQA certified schools and private training establishments offering English tuition and many students augment their tertiary majors with additional language studies.
As New Zealand progressively moves to a user-pays system, academic institutions have increasingly looked overseas for new sources of students
and revenue and international enrolments at The University of Auckland are now approximately commensurate with domestic enrolments. International students provide a significant and welcome injection of finance into city retail, entertainment and services.
Both Auckland University (AU) and Auckland University of Technology (AUT) offer comprehensive support services for international students and the International Student Centres at both institutions can assist students with everything from enrolment, settling in and adjusting to the Kiwi lifestyle and getting started on studying.
