Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

12-16-semester credits

API students at AUT University will be able to enroll in a variety of subject areas with over 4,000 students, including local “Kiwis” and other international students from over 85 countries. The program begins with a unique Noho Marae weekend orienation where international students will learn about and experience New Zealand’s Maori culture and heritage (for more information on this, see the excursion section).

COURSE INFORMATION

Courses in New Zealand are commonly referred to as “papers.” Introductory papers are called 100-level papers; subsequent years or semesters are considered 200- and 300-level papers. 400-level papers are considered at the graduate level. Most papers are single-semester and are worth 15 points (credits). Minimum full-time enrollment at AUT includes 60 points (i.e. 4 papers per semester). One 15 point paper is generally equivalent to 3-4 U.S. semester credits. Given that point values vary, the way in which credits completed abroad will transfer to a student’s home campus will be under the discretion of the student’s home institution and should be verified in advance.

INTERNSHIP TRACK

AUT’s semester-long study-internship track provides API students the opportunity to undertake a part-time supervised work placement in their chosen field, along with 2 mainstream AUT courses (known as“papers”). This is equivalent to full-time status and will award 12-16 semester credits. Additional program details can be found on the ‘Course Offerings’ page. This track carries an additional fee.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive their transcript from AUT University upon completion of their program.
