University pathways

Students who achieve required grades in the AUT University Certificate in Foundation Studies are guaranteed entry into an appropriate AUT undergraduate degree. The programme is also approved for entry into all other New Zealand universities and selected Australian universities.

Two offers of place from the start

Students who enrol in the AUT University Certificate in Foundation Studies receive two offers of place: a letter of offer for the Foundation Studies course and a conditional letter of offer for an undergraduate degree at AUT. Once students successfully complete their certificate and meet other admission requirements, AUT sends a confirmed offer of place.

Academic excellence – the key to success

UP Education recruits top specialists in each field of study so you can achieve the best possible results. Teaching is a mix of lectures, tutorials and self-study periods, with laboratory and practical classes for some subjects. Expect 20–29 hours of contact teaching each week, with another 20 hours a week in self-study. Each student is assigned a tutor to be on hand to help with any issues. AUT University staff also meet with students to discuss degree options and answer questions.
