Studying at AUT is pretty good. The people are nice and there seems to be a lot to do. It probably could be improved with better facilities- I’ve noticed that Auckland Uni tends to have more in the way of facilities for students (better gym etc) Try to attend information days before uni and see course councilors so that you pick the right course for you. I was put in contact with a programme administrator for my course, I received tons of advice and support about the course and my options. I didn’t make it into my course the first time round (short a few credits). So the selection process is fair. Early application is best, try to enroll the year or semester before you are wanting to start. I knew about studylink, however I did not know much about scholarships that were being offered. Try to organize studylink payments as early as possible and enroll through the studylink website because it’s faster. My course is okay, the content is a little boring at times (business faculty) I liked studying the Bachelor of Arts papers more because they ask for more input from their students. Group discussions are the best bit, individual study isn’t that great. Probably need to study between 3-5 hours a week Some of the new tutors are hard to learn from, the older more experienced ones are pretty good. Otherwise my current lecturers arn't too bad. Yes I receive the support I need, in my opinion the course is worth the money.

Engineering research

Overall experience has been good. Not that it is going outstanding but I still find it quite satisfactory. This is a research only course and deals with writing a thesis in engineering.

A very good experience!

This is a good university overall. The most important advice is to remain career oriented at all times and to keep your focus on your studies. Do not get distracted.
