About University of Auckland
The University of Auckland was established in 1883 and has grown into an international center of learning and academic excellence. The University is situated in the heart of the cosmopolitan city of Auckland and provides an exciting and stimulating environment for 40,000 students, including 6,000 international students from 110 countries.
Auckland (pop. 1.8 million) is New Zealand's largest city and is known by its Maori name as Tamaki-makau-rau, "desired by thousands". The University of Auckland’s campus offers the attractions of city life combined with the appeal of outdoor living - close to cafes, restaurants, cinemas, parks, shopping, yet within 30 minutes of some of the world's most stunning beaches and landscapes.
