Private Training Establishment
Number of students
Established in 1990, Auckland Institute of Studies is one of New Zealand’s leading independent degree-granting institutions.
You will benefit from a friendly and nurturing environment that balances and supports the demanding academic programmes. At AIS you will experience expert personalised education in small classes. Whether from New Zealand or overseas, you will receive everything you need to feel comfortable and confident while studying at AIS – ensuring that you are well-equipped to succeed once you complete your qualification.
Since its inception, AIS has attracted students and staff from all over the world and has now developed a number of close relationships with leading educational institutions internationally.
New Zealand’s most prestigious Private Training Establishment offering quality education and strong support with a focus on helping the individual to achieve successful career outcomes.
Our four driving values keep our focus on delivering the best possible results for our students:
As a NZQA Category 1 provider AIS offers you the reassurance of knowing you have enrolled in one of New Zealand’s largest and longest-established Tertiary Education Organisations. Take advantage of a wide range of attractively priced diploma, degree, graduate and postgraduate qualifications, all approved by NZQA and recognised within New Zealand and internationally. Members of our well respected academic staff are leaders in their fields and committed to providing you with the best possible educational outcome.
You are much more than just another student at AIS. Our class sizes are considerably smaller than many other Tertiary Education Organisations, guaranteeing you better access to academic staff when you need it and maximising your learning opportunities. Our fast track programmes, flexible entry dates and cross credit recognition mean you can take advantage of previous studies and achieve your educational goals quickly.
It’s important that you feel confident and comfortable while you are studying – especially if you are a long way from home. The park-like grounds of the St Helens campus add to the peaceful atmosphere of the institute – and are only 10 minutes drive to the centre of Auckland. Live on campus at our student hostel, catch up with your work in our library and unwind at our gymnasium and sports hall – all protected by 24 hour security. Our friendly and approachable Student Services and Marketing team are always available to give the best pastoral support possible – in your own language.
At AIS we understand that you are studying because you need options in the future- options for further study, for employment or even for immigration. Our industry – focused programmes are carefully designed to provide the training you will need to succeed. Gain relevant NZ work experience on the AIS MBA Internship Pathway or the AIS Graduate Placement Service. With students from over 30 countries on campus, as an AIS alumnus you will build an international network of contacts and life-long friends.
