Message from the President.

Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa, a very warm welcome to Auckland Institute of Studies.

We look forward to partnering with you on your education journey and believe there will be many opportunities for you to learn, develop and grow - to build connections with fellow students who could one day be your global professional network, and some of your closest friends.

You have made a good decision to invest in your education and to continue your studies at AIS. We are a Category 1 private education provider. That means you can be highly confident that AIS is a high performing education provider based on an External Evaluation and Review (EER) process set by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA).

You will be able to interact with people from various backgrounds and develop a good understanding of the world, foster new connections, and build networks which may become valuable in your career. The learning and development of each student are guided by qualified and experienced staff in our academic as well as service departments. They are committed to help you achieve success. We have created learning pathways and support strategies to cater for the different skills and abilities of individual students. This helps to maximise your opportunities to achieve your goals.

Earning an AIS academic qualification is a significant achievement and requires each student to demonstrate a high level of personal commitment, endurance, independence, critical thinking, and integrity; all key competencies for 21st Century workplaces and for those interested in a more entrepreneurial career focus.

We actively seek input from, and work with stakeholders - especially prospective employers – to ensure that we align our qualifications with what employers expect of graduates. We promote and support students moving forward in their careers through internships, career advice, post qualification placement support, and an effective alumni network.

Studying at AIS is a uniquely rewarding and positively challenging experience. If you are ready for the challenge on the way to achieving your goals, we are ready to support you on that journey.

Dr Lehan J. Stemmet
