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.

Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa, a very warm welcome to Auckland Institute of Studies (AIS), an independent tertiary institution with a distinctive international focus. We attract many thousands of students and staff from countries around the world and have developed effective global relationships with other educational institutions.
AIS was established in 1990 with the goal of offering a broad range of programmes from beginner’s English through to a master’s degree qualification.
The learning and development of each student is guided by qualified staff who are committed to helping students achieve success. Today’s AIS students experience expert personalised education.
We have created learning pathways and support strategies to cater for the different skills and abilities of individual students, maximising their opportunities to achieve their goals.
On both our St Helens and Asquith Campuses we ensure that a friendly nurturing environment balances and supports our rigorous and demanding academic programmes. We utilise a variety of monitoring mechanisms to ensure that the quality of our programmes is maintained at the highest international standards.
Earning an AIS academic qualification is significant achievement, and requires each student to demonstrate a high level of personal commitment and integrity.
In order for our graduates to utilise their qualifications, we actively seek input from and work with stakeholders, especially prospective employers. We promote and support students moving forward in their careers through internships, an active careers office, post-qualification placement grants, and an effective alumni network.
Studying at AIS is a uniquely rewarding and positively challenging experience.
