Otago Polytechnic

Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand with about 1.6 million people. It is the country's biggest centre of business and industry and offers excellent employment and lifestyle opportunities.

Popularly known as the ‘City of Sails’ because the harbour is often dotted with hundreds of yachts, there are people of many cultures and nationalities living in this city, and it has plenty to offer with great shopping and excellent museums, theatres and art galleries. Auckland has been rated the third best city in the world, and the best city in the Pacific for quality of life.*

Our Campus is located in the heart of central Auckland, so you are never far from the action and fun of this cosmopolitan city.

Our team is made up of top quality teachers and support staff, who come from a range of cultural backgrounds and countries themselves. Classes are taught in English, and there are staff available who speak other languages.

The Auckland International Campus is a partnership between Otago Polytechnic and Future Skills Academy.
