AUT University

Study Group’s partnership with AUT University has seen the university’s international student intake grow and diversify, while strengthening its profile as an international education destination.

Smooth progression onto a Bachelors degree course

For over a decade, AUT University has been welcoming students from the Auckland Foundation Year (AFY). Delivered by Taylors College from its study centre in the heart of Auckland, AFY has been designed to give students the academic qualifications, English language and study skills they need for a Bachelors degree course.

Cultural and pastoral support is another essential component to the student experience at Taylors, ensuring excellent progression rates on to university study.

Valuing students

AUT University traces its roots back to 1895 as the country’s leading Institute of Technology. It earned its university status in 2000 in recognition of its national and international stature in creativity, innovation, scholarship, research, and excellence in teaching.

Study Group’s unique global reach helps to attract students from diverse backgrounds. On successful completion of their AFY course, students can progress onto a wide range of undergraduate degree courses from Computer Science to Chemistry, Fashion and Physiotherapy.

Three AFY courses are available depending on the student’s academic needs and level of English:

  • the Intensive Programme (31 weeks)
  • the Standard Programme (40/39/36 weeks) 
  • the Pre-Foundation Programme (60/58 weeks)
