Auckland University Of Technology:
Surrounded by extinct volcanoes and home to one third of New Zealand's population, Auckland is New Zealand's largest city as well as its gateway for tourism. It is a city of cultural diversity with a large Polynesian, Maori and Asian, as well as European, population. AUT has two campuses here, its City Campus located on Wellesley Street and the Akoranga Campus situated on the North Shore.
AUT's City Campus is conveniently located right in the heart of Auckland. Queen Street, the main street of Auckland, is a bustling area one minute's walk away making shopping or people-watching between lectures a distinct possibility! As well as shopping there are various restaurants and cafés to enjoy.
If you want to walk a little further the Auckland Viaduct is a beautiful spot to enjoy high quality restaurants and soak up the sun whilst taking in the view of Auckland harbour. Other attractions within walking distance include the Auckland Domain, an ideal place to picnic or study in the sun. The Auckland Museum is also located here and houses one of the world's finest Maori and Polynesian collections, as well as offering a great view over the city.
AUT's North Shore campus is located on Auckland's North Shore, just across the Auckland Harbour Bridge. The North Shore campus has a relaxed atmosphere and is situated close to some fabulous beaches and parks. Takapuna is 10 minutes drive away from the campus and has a popular beach, with fantastic views of the volcanic island of Rangitoto. Takapuna is also the ideal place to soak up the café culture, take in a movie or go shopping. Glenfield, about 5 minutes drive away, is also a good place to go shopping.
Auckland's climate is temperate and perfect for spending days enjoying the many beautiful and clean beaches within easy reach of the city. Temperatures range from an average of 24 degrees in summer (December to March) to 16 degrees in winter. Watersports would have to be the most popular form of recreation and the city is often referred to as the 'City of Sails' since it is situated right beside the Waitemata Harbour. Auckland teems with yachts and boats of all descriptions and in 2000 hosted New Zealand's successful defence of the Americas Cup, making it now the undisputed home of the Cup.
New Zealand is a beautiful nuclear-free country with a small population of just 3.8 million. It is made up of three main islands, the North Island, the South Island and Stewart Island. Its small size makes getting around the country quite easy and there are various forms of transport to choose from.
New Zealanders tend to be active people, probably because our country is a small island nation close to the sea and the mountains. The environment is extremely diverse and ranges from long stretches of windswept beaches, lush native bush and geothermal moonscapes, to sparkling mountain glaciers. Almost any sporting activity can be enjoyed here against the backdrop of the stunning scenery.
If you enjoy winter sports the ski season usually begins in June until September. Regardless of what time of the year it is, the climate is usually good enough to enable you to appreciate the scenery and experience the friendliness that Kiwis are world renowned for.
New Zealand is an ethnically diverse country made up of Maori, the tangata whenua (people of the land), Pakeha (people of European descent) and other main minority groups including Pacific Islanders, Chinese, and Indians. To reflect our biculturalism we have two official languages, English and Maori.
Auckland is the largest and most culturally diverse of New Zealand's cities. About one million people live in Auckland. The other major cities are Wellington, which is our capital city, Christchurch and Dunedin. Wellington and Auckland are both in the North Island, while Christchurch and Dunedin are in the South Island.
School / Office Address:
If you live in central Auckland (the city, Ponsonby, Grey Lynn, Kingsland, Grafton, Parnell, Arch Hill), try walking, cycling or catching the bus to AUT.
If you are on the North Shore, catching the Shuttle Bus or Northern Express Bus Service is the best way to get to AUT. If you are near a harbour, take a ferry.
If you live in West, South or East Auckland, try catching the train into the city. If you don’t live near a station, you could drive or cycle to the station, then 'park and ride'. Taking the bus is another easy option, giving you time to catch up on your reading on the way to class.
