Welcome to AUT

AUT’s Vice Chancellor Derek McCormack shares his vision for the future, and why ‘soft skills’ or ‘C-Skills’ - communication, creativity, curiosity, collaboration, cooperation and caring within a sense of community - are critical to meet a rapidly changing professional work-force.

  • We know that these are uncertain times and many students have told us that the block learning approach communicated last week was creating additional uncertainty and anxiety. 
We have listened to you and rethought our approach. We will maintain our two-semester calendar with programmes adjusting their existing timetable as needed.

  • Following the Prime Minister’s announcement today of going to COVID 19 Alert Level 4 (complete shutdown) from Wednesday this week for four weeks, we want to provide you with certainty over what will be happening for you at the university.

1.  AUT is bringing the mid-semester break forward and extending it by two weeks. It will now run from Wednesday 25 March to Wednesday 22 April 2020. Following this break the academic year will be restructured to fully accommodate all teaching for all programmes. 
2.  During the break there will be no teaching or assessment either on campus or online, and assessment deadlines will be postponed until further notice.

3.  The campuses will also be completely shut down except for essential services, including all those to support student accommodation and security. Student Accommodation will remain open throughout.

4.  Many of our student services, however, will be continuing on line throughout the break and full information about these will be on the AUT and AUTSA websites.

During the break AUT lecturers and staff will continuing develop quality online materials and learning resources ready for the restart of teaching.

From Thursday 23 April 2020, teaching online will begin.

If we are able to return to Alert Level 3 on 23 April some on-campus service and activities will be able to restart, particularly those to assist students who cannot get adequate online access from their home.

Our focus is on ensuring that every student will be able to complete their qualification in the year they were expected to. Further information will be made available on a regular basis via our websites and via the AUT Student App.
