What is the student composition at UoA? Where are most people from and what do they study?
The student composition at UoA is highly diverse. There is an extremely high proportion of foreign students, with most of them heralding from Asia. The next highest sub-group would be Auckland residents, followed by students from other areas of New Zealand, mainly in the upper North Island. In general, all of the degrees are highly diverse. I myself have sat in an engineering tutorial with over 30 students, and have been the only person who was not from overseas or Auckland. I have also had the same experience in commerce classes. Whether you like it or not, it’s something you must come accustomed to when studying in Auckland. In saying that you won’t feel out of place no matter what nationality you are.
