Our faculty

The Faculty of Education is ranked top in New Zealand and 24th out of the world's universities for Education*. The faculty has also been confirmed as the most research-productive and internationally reputable education faculty in the country and our high number of active researchers are nationally and internationally recognised for their work.**

The Faculty of Education offers:

  • Research-informed undergraduate programmes in education, teacher education, social work and human services - including specialist qualifications in the areas of Te Reo Māori primary teaching and Pasifika early childhood education.
  • A comprehensive range of postgraduate programmes, professional development opportunities, consultancy and support services for teachers, schools, principals and those in social services.

The faculty is primarily based at Epsom Campus, the home of the former Auckland College of Education. Some programmes are also offered at City and Tāmaki campuses and at The University of Auckland at Manukau Institute of Technology. We also have Tai Tokerau Campus in Whangarei where students living in Northland can study Māori medium and primary teaching programmes.
