Applying for other postgraduate programmes

Applying for non-doctoral programmes differs depending on whether you are applying as a new student, or are a returning student from a previous semester.

New students

If you have not been enrolled at The University of Auckland in previous years, you need to gain general admission to the University before being admitted to a programme.

A supplementary application form may also be required.

If you are an international student, you must contact staff at Auckland International.

 

Returning students

Students who have enrolled at the University in the semesters prior to beginning their postgraduate programme are considered as returning students.

Returning students can apply to change their programme on Student Services Online.

A supplementary application form may also be required.

 

If you are unsure about which process to follow, nee help or just have a general enquiry, please contact the Engineering Student Centre.
