How to Apply

How to apply for admission to the University and enrolment into a programme.

Choose your programme
Visit our undergradatue study options page to choose your programme or contact us for any information you need.
Check the application closing dates and entry requirements
Visit undergraduate application closing dates. View the entry requirements by visiting the specific page for your programme and check our general entry criteria for all our undergraduate degree and diploma programmes.  
Apply for a place in a programme(s)
  • Go to www.apply.auckland.ac.nz.
  • Sign up for a new account (unless you already have an account).
  • Complete the "Application for Admission".

You will receive an acknowledgement email asking you to provide specific certified documents (and in some cases to complete other requirements) before your application can be assessed.


We’ll also send you a Student ID number. You can use this to sign into your Application for Admission, check your application status and see the documentation you need to provide. (Please note: you can apply for more than one programme). 

Submit your supporting documents

Once we receive the required documents from you we can then assess your application.


Please be aware that documents can take three to four weeks to process during peak admission periods. If you have sent in all your admission documents at one time, some will take longer to process and be updated in the system than others. If your programme requires an interview, you will be contacted and given a date for the interview.

Conditional offer of place  

If your application is successful, we’ll email you an offer of place with check list of things to complete in order to meet the conditions of your offer of place. You can check the status of your Application for Admission at any time by signing in using your Student ID and password. Go to www.apply.auckland.ac.nz.

You may receive a conditional offer but final approval will be dependent on fulfilment of the conditions of admission to BOTH the University and the programme. Conditions may include safety checks, an interview, literacy and numeracy tests, IELTS and a police certificate. For tips on how to prepare for your interview, see here.  
Accept your offer of place

Sign into your Application for Admission (www.apply.auckland.ac.nz) and accept or decline your offer of place.  

Enrol in your courses

Once you have met all the conditions and accepted your offer of place, you can start to enrol in courses for 2017 on Monday 7 November 2016. 

Once you have enrolled, your University of Auckland email account is created. University emails will be sent to this account.

You are able to set up a forward to your preferred email address if you wish.

When you are successfully enrolled, you will find your class timetable on Student Services Online (www.studentservices.auckland.ac.nz).
