As one of the world's top 50 young universities and New Zealand's newest, Auckland University of Technology (AUT) is a university of opportunity where all students with talent and potential have the chance to succeed. We are a socially-driven university with equity and excellence central to our purpose and actions, and we offer a stimulating teaching and research environment with strong connections to government, business, and industry. AUT has more than 27,000 students and over 4,000 staff based primarily at our three Auckland teaching campuses.

Our practice-based School of Communication Studies/Te Kura Whakapāho (part of AUT's transdisciplinary Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies Faculty/Te Ara Auaha) is one of the top 250 in the world (QS Rankings 2023) and the leading school of communication studies and media in New Zealand.

This includes our flagship Bachelor of Communication Studies programme. Throughout the School there is a dynamic interplay of communication theory and media practice across advertising creativity, digital media, journalism, public relations, radio and audio media, and screen production. Undergraduate degrees and postgraduate qualifications to PhD level are offered covering these fields.

The School is home to a lively and diverse community of scholars from all over the world and welcomes international work and collaboration. It also has a strong focus on Māori and Pacific people, has well-established kaupapa and values, and is very well supported by outstanding facilities including a media centre, radio station, black box theatre, and fully equipped motion capture and TV studios. Collaboration and partnership underpin everything we do, and we connect our students with industry leaders from our extraordinary range of partner organisations.
