It’s time to apply

So, you’ve made your decision on what to study − now what do you need to do?

It’s a two-step process to apply and enrol for your chosen programme.


First you need to apply

• Visit an

d complete the Application for

Admission. If you haven’t already, you’ll be asked to sign up for a new

account. It’s easy, and you’ll soon be underway in making your application.

• Next you will receive an acknowledgement email asking you to

provide certified documents (and in some cases to complete other

requirements*) before your application can be assessed.

• Remember that you can apply for more than one programme. We’ll be

assessing your application and you can check your application status

online at any time. Be patient though – documents can take 3-4 weeks

to process during peak admission periods. Some of your documents

might take longer to process than others, despite being sent in at the

same time. If your application is successful, we’ll email you an offer –

normally from mid-January**. To accept or decline this offer visit

If you’re applying through the Targeted Admission Scheme (TAS), then it’s

important to know that it has changed to better include students from

low socio-economic backgrounds or those with refugee status. For more

information about applying under this scheme visit

Some late applications may be considered after the 2016 school results

are received. However, it is advisable to apply for all programmes that

you might wish to study before the closing date. Multiple applications are

acceptable and all applications will be considered when 2016 academic

results are available.

Scholarships can help with the cost of study. If you are a new student

enrolling at the University of Auckland then regardless of your background

or where you live, you may be eligible for a scholarship.

Entry-level scholarships and awards range in value from one-off payments

of up to $5,000 to scholarships that pay for your tuition fees and $2,500

living costs for up to three years. Categories for school leavers include

academic excellence, Māori and Pacific students and anyone experiencing

financial hardship with an ability to succeed at university.
