Applications to the University of Auckland are made online.

Most Faculty of Education and Social Work programmes require you to provide information to support your application to the University. This information depends on which programme you are applying for. For example: for teaching, social work, human services and counselling programmes you are required to provide referee reports and a police check form. These forms are downloaded when prompted during the online application.

You may be requested to attend an interview, either in person or via Skype, before final Faculty selection is made.

If you are selected by the Faculty as a suitable applicant for your specific programme and your application to the University is successful, you will be offered a place in the programme that you then have to accept or decline. If you accept (and we hope that you will) then you will be eligible to enrol in the courses that you require.
