The University of Auckland’s main City Campus is located in the heart of Auckland, which is ranked fourth out of 215 world cities for quality of living in the 2009 Mercer Quality of Living Survey (see www.mercer.com/qualityofliving).
Auckland’s harbour setting, magnificent beaches and verdant bush make it a great place to study and work, while the University’s close proximity to New Zealand’s major business city enables staff and students to rub shoulders with leading practitioners in their field. For example, medical students work alongside leading specialists at Auckland City Hospital while the Faculty of Law is within walking distance of the courts and major legal firms. The Business School has a close relationship with leading Auckland companies and academics from our Faculty of Engineering, School of Population Health and School of Architecture and Planning serve on think-tanks helping to shape the city’s future.
