Partnered with the leading university in New Zealand, the University of Auckland International College has been delivering the Foundation programme for more than 20 years on behalf of the University of Auckland.
The International College specialises in preparing students for undergraduate study at the University of Auckland through its programme, the University of Auckland Certificate in Foundation Studies. Students who successfully complete the Foundation programme and meet course specific requirements are guaranteed entry into a University of Auckland undergraduate degree.
The Certificate in Foundation Studies provides a comprehensive framework of preparatory education, which includes a core module of English for Academic Purposes (EAP), and an additional four modules that students can choose based on their intended undergraduate degree. The programme is delivered through a variety of live and flexible teaching methods, and distance learning options are available.
The International College's integrated approach to Foundation Studies means that the student's first step is as a University of Auckland student. Once enrolled in the Certificate in Foundation Studies, they can take advantage of benefits such as a packaged offer and visa, access to the University's facilities, and more.
For a smooth transition from Foundation to degree, there will be regular opportunities for students to get a glimpse of University life through campus tours. Staff, current students and alumni will be invited to share insights on the different faculties and degree options. A transition session will be conducted by the International College and the University, which provides guidance for accepting the degree offer, and a progression plan for continued success at University.
The University of Auckland International College has successfully guided over 10,000 international students into fulfilling their ambitions of studying a degree level course at a top New Zealand institution.
