New Zealand Universities


New Zealand universities are well-recognised internationally. More than half are ranked among the top 500 universities in the world and one is in the top 50. All have strong international connections and collaborate with universities in other countries on a range of research and teaching programmes. New Zealand’s university quality assurance system ensures that the standards of both teaching and research are high and consistent across all eight universities.

All New Zealand’s universities offer a broad range of subjects for undergraduate, masters and Doctoral (PhD) degrees in commerce, science and the humanities. A number of universities have more than one campus, often located in different cities, and some have overseas programmes, usually in partnership with an offshore provider, as a base for delivery of courses.
