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
• Visitwww.apply.auckland.ac.nz 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 visitwww.apply.auckland.ac.nz
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 visitwww.arts.auckland.ac.nz/tas
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.

information (eg, a portfolio of work, referee reports, an online form) or
to attend an interview/audition.
**If you are not offered a place in the programme(s) of your choice, you
will receive an email outlining alternative options. Your final offer of a
place depends on two things: your admission to the University (which
for school leavers may depend on your final school results) and your
assessment by the relevant faculty.
