The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s leading university and the only one included in the Times Higher Education top 200.

Founded in 1883, it is also the highest ranked New Zealand university in the QS World University Rankings and Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities. Some 35 percent of the top ranked academic researchers in New Zealand are at the University of Auckland.

Teaching and research is conducted over eight faculties and two large-scale research institutes. The university has a very strong Arts and Humanities programmes, the largest Science programme in New Zealand, and professional undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Architecture, Engineering, Law and Medicine.

It is the only New Zealand university invited to be a member of Universitas 21, the World Universities Network (WUN) and the Association of Pacific Rim Universities, consortia of prestigious global universities.
