Welcome to AUT
E ngā mana, e ngā reo
E te iti, e te rahi

Ngā mahuetanga iho e kawe nei i ngā

Welcome to Auckland University of
Technology – the second largest and
fastest growing university in New Zealand.
AUT is ranked in the top 3% of universities
in the world in the QS World University
Rankings, and 19th in the world for our
international outlook.
More than 28,000 students from 140
countries study at AUT across our three
campuses in Manukau, Auckland’s CBD
and the North Shore.
AUT students learn in an engaging
environment which encourages them to
participate, develop their own opinions,
gain knowledge and learn how to apply it in
real situations. Our teaching and learning
incorporates the latest technologies – from
the motion capture lab and 3D printing
facilities to the high performance sport
laboratory and drone technology.
AUT provides its students with a rich and
diverse student experience – from the
connections students make with industry
and business through work placements and
internships, to the opportunities to engage
with communities and in volunteering and
leadership programmes. This helps students
leave AUT as well-rounded graduates with
skills that complement their academic
achievements — skills that employers tell
us they want.
I look forward to welcoming you to
the university.

years at AUT.
Year 1
Bo Ahn
Production Co-ordinator,
McDonald Textiles
Bachelor of Design
in Textile Design
“I started sewing when I was
in intermediate school and I
loved using delicate materials
like fabric. I’m interested in all
design, but I particularly like
textiles because I can design the
actual material itself. The beauty
of textile design is that it’s a
very broad area of study - it can
be abstract, visual, functional
or hi-tech. In my role now I love
being involved in the creation
of luxurious garments. I also
do a lot of problem solving to
maximise productivity in our
department and keep garment
quality at the highest level.”
16
You complete two design studio papers and three other core papers
related to your major, developing practical skills and a sound
understanding of your chosen area of design. You also take the first
paper from your minor.
Year 2 & 3
Build on what you’ve learnt in Year 1 and specialise further in your
major and minor. You develop specific technical skills, and an
understanding of design processes and theories. At the heart of
Year 3 is your final-year project, and you may have the opportunity
to exhibit your work at the AUT School of Art and Design festival or
the AUT Rookie fashion show.

Bachelor of Visual Arts
“I chose to do visual arts simply
because I’ve always been a
visual person. Through making
art, I explore the potential of
everyday things and challenge
existing perceptions we have
toward them. I create sculptures
and installation works using a
range of materials including
familiar functional objects,
which are re-contextualised as
artworks. I’m currently living in
London, using my time here to
research and generate artworks
for an exhibition. A solo

“Growing up, I was always
captivated by the night sky, and
when I heard AUT was offering
a degree in astronomy I decided
to try it. We learned a lot about
the cosmos and stars of course,
but the astronomy degree also
covers how to deal with large
amounts of data, using software
to separate it, categorise it
and analyse it. I now use what
I learned at AUT to analyse

“The law degree offers a
healthy balance of academia
and real-life practice, including
mooting, dispute resolution and
drafting court documents. It
means that as a student you’re
honing the skills you need as
a lawyer, before your first day
on the job. I liked that some of
our lecturers were practising
law as well as teaching it, which
provided valuable insight into
the legal profession. Due to
AUT’s strong industry contacts
there were also several guest

Bachelor of Sport and Recreation in
Sport and Exercise Science
“I’ve always been passionate
about helping others when
it comes to sport and
rehabilitation. I now have
my own company, SFPT –
Simon Fathers Performance
Training, and I often find myself
integrating the skills I learned at
AUT when it comes to planning
and evaluating our business
framework. I get to work with
some of the world’s best big
wave surfers and elite athletes
from a variety of other sports,
including rugby, rugby league,
mixed martial arts, track and
field, and football.”

Conjoints, double degrees,
additional majors
Studying both sport and
business was the start of
a great career for Luke
McQueen who now works
for the BNZ
Today, standing out from the crowd is more important than
ever. Having skills in more than one discipline can give you the
competitive edge and increase your career opportunities. Studying
conjoint programmes or double degrees, or including a second
major or a minor in your degree is a great way to develop skills in
different fields.
Conjoint programmes
A conjoint programme of study doubles your knowledge and
opportunities, but it doesn’t take double the time to complete. You
study two degrees at the same time in a single programme of study
and complete both degrees in a shorter time than it would take
to complete them separately. It’s usually possible to complete two
three-year degrees in four to five years 1.
AUT offers the following conjoint programmes of study:
• Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Business
• Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Computer and
Information Sciences
• Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Communication Studies

Constable, New Zealand Police
Bachelor of Arts in Criminology
and Bachelor of Business in
Management conjoint programmes
“I was working as an executive
assistant and thought a
business degree would
help with my personal and
professional development.
I had always been interested
in criminology, so after
completing my core business
papers I turned my degree into
a conjoint programme with the
Bachelor of Arts. I didn’t realise
it at the time, but the decision
to study criminology marked a
turning point in my life. I feel
I’ve truly found my calling.”

• Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Computer
and Information Sciences
• Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Health Science majoring
in Psychology
• Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of International
Hospitality Management
• Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Science
Double degrees 2
Double degrees are another great way to make your CV stand out.
The difference between double degrees and conjoint programmes
is that in the double degrees you apply for and enrol separately
in each of the two degrees. If you’re considering doing this, it’s
important that you contact AUT to discuss your plans.
You may be able to cross-credit relevant papers from one degree to
the other, although the number of cross-credits will vary depending
on the degree combinations. Double degrees can be completed
either one after the other or concurrently.
Some popular combinations include:
• Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws
• Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Laws
• Bachelor of Communication Studies and Bachelor of Laws
• Bachelor of Design and Bachelor of Business
Melissa Kow balances her
love of Japanese with her
interest in business by
studying Bachelor of Arts
and Bachelor of Business
conjoint programmes
• Bachelor of Visual Arts and Bachelor of Business
Second majors and minors
If conjoints or double degrees aren’t for you, you may be able to
take a second major in your degree. When you take a second major
from the majors available in your degree this is called a double
major. If you take the second major from another AUT degree this is
called an additional major.
Minors are also available in these and some other subjects. Adding
a second major or a minor allows you to study another area that
interests you from a wide range of subjects, so long as your
timetable permits.
For a list of second majors and minors visit www.aut.ac.nz
Te reo Māori papers
In most AUT degrees you can also study te reo Māori as an elective.
Some of our introductory and intermediate te reo papers have
zero tuition fees. Our innovative digital platform means you can
download your homework as podcasts, watch animated movies,
complete exercises online, and access a comprehensive online
dictionary with new entries and images being added daily.
www.aut.ac.nz
1.There are some special rules: You need to maintain a B grade average across all
papers each year and you need to do papers from each degree every year.
2.Some restrictions apply. For example, the clinical health degrees can’t be studied as
double degrees.
Amy Pollok
Strategic Planner, Colenso BBDO
Bachelor of Business and Bachelor
of Communication Studies conjoint
programmes
“I realised that I needed
more creativity in my studies,
which is why I enrolled in
communication studies.
However, I didn’t want to
sacrifice business acumen,
so I chose to do the Bachelor
of Business and Bachelor
of Communication Studies
conjoint programmes,
majoring in marketing and
advertising creativity. It was
the perfect way to pursue
both creative and business
studies. Strategic planning is a
hybrid discipline of creativity
and business, and in this role
I often draw on what I learned
throughout my studies.”

GLOSSARY
Glossary – AUT speak explained
Degrees, conjoints, majors, minors… tertiary talk can feel like a foreign language. This glossary explains
commonly used AUT terms.
Bachelor’s degree
Double major
A bachelor’s degree (or undergraduate degree)
is the highest programme of study you can enter
straight from secondary school. Most bachelor’s
degrees take three years’ of full-time study; some
can take four to five years.
A double major means studying two separately
approved majors within a degree (only available in
some programmes). For example, you can study the
Bachelor of Business and major in both accounting
and management.
Corequisite
Elective
A corequisite is a specified paper you must take with
another paper, unless you have already successfully
completed it. For example, to enrol in the paper Te
Kākano I, you need to study the paper Wānanga Reo
I at the same time.
An elective is a non-compulsory paper you can
choose as part of your qualification to broaden
your learning. Not all programmes have elective
papers. Depending on your qualification, you may
be able to choose electives from either within
your qualification or from another AUT bachelor’s
degree.
Conjoint programmes
A conjoint programme of study enables you to study
two degrees at the same time and complete both in
a shorter time than it would take to complete them
separately. This is because a number of papers can
count towards both degrees. It is usually possible
to complete two three-year degrees in four to five
years. You need to maintain a B grade average
across all papers each year and do papers from each
degree every year.
Double degrees
Double degrees consist of two individually approved
qualifications you can study at the same time or
one after the other. The difference between double
degrees and conjoint programmes is that in the
double degrees you apply for and enrol separately
in each of the two degrees. Double degrees
can be completed either one after the other or
concurrently. If you’re considering doing this,
it’s important that you contact AUT to discuss
your plans.

Papers in a bachelor’s degree are levels 5, 6 and 7.
You start with level 5 papers and work your way up
to level 7. Postgraduate papers are level 8 and 9.
Major
Your major is the subject area you specialise in.
It normally makes up at least one third of your
degree (120 points) and requires completing certain
compulsory papers and other requirements. For
some programmes, a major leads to a specific career
pathway, such as the Nursing major in the Bachelor
of Health Science. In other programmes, choosing a
major is optional and you can also study the degree
without a major (often called standard pathway).
Some people also study a double major.
Minor
A minor is also a subject area you can specialise in,
but it is smaller than a major. A minor consists of
at least 60 points in a single subject area (a major
consists of 120 points).
GLOSSARY
Paper
Each programme is made up of papers. Most papers are
worth 15 points and for a bachelor’s degree you need a
total of 360 points to complete the programme. If you
are studying full-time, you normally enrol in 60 points
per semester (120 points per year).
Pre-degree
Certificates and diplomas – pre-degree programmes –
can be a pathway into one or more bachelor’s degrees.
For example, the Certificate in Hospitality and Tourism
is a pathway into all hospitality and tourism degrees.
Prerequisite
A prerequisite is a specified paper you must pass before
you can enrol in next level papers. For example, in the
Bachelor of Education ([Specialty] Teaching) you need
to complete the paper ECE Professional Inquiry and
Practice II before you can enrol in ECE Professional
Inquiry and Practice III.
Semester
A semester covers a period of 15 weeks. AUT’s academic
year has two semesters. In 2018, Semester 1 starts on 26
February and ends on 22 June; Semester 2 starts 16 July
and ends on 9 November 2018.
Workplace experience
Workplace experience is a key part of many AUT
bachelor’s degrees – giving you a chance to apply
your learning to real work situations. This gives you
experience in a role that draws on the skills you have
been developing through your studies. The length of the
workplace experience varies between degrees. You may
spend time in a workplace or an organisation related to
your major or work on a project for a client.
