Since 1895 Auckland University of Technology (AUT) has been a place of learning for both domestic and international students. AUT is one of the world's best modern universities, led by an outstanding team of professional and academic staff. Times Higher Education has ranked AUT as the top millennial university in Australasia and it is in the top 1% of universities in the world. AUT enrols about 30 000 students annually (20% of which are international students from Europe, Asia and Pasifika). According to statistics, AUT's graduates are able to find a full-time job within 9 months of graduating.
Today it is the second-largest university in the country with five faculties across three campuses in Auckland. AUT's shuttle buses link these campuses, providing an easy way to get between classes and facilities.
