Dunedin Tertiary Open Day 2019

The University of Otago and the Otago Polytechnic are adjacent to one another, making for a greater campus area, just minutes’ walk from the city centre. You are likely to live within walking distance of your lecture theatres, classrooms, libraries and gyms, and your neighbours are probably students too, so it’s easy to make friends. Dunedin Tertiary Open Day gives you the chance to explore these campuses and experience the tertiary environment first hand. You are invited to visit special displays, presentations and explore the various facilities students use.

AUT Soars in world university rankings

AUT SOARS IN WORLD UNIVERSITY RANKINGS

Times Higher Education (THE) recently released its 2019 World University Rankings results, placing AUT for the first time in the top three universities in New Zealand, and the top 350 in the world.

 

Over the last four years AUT has climbed consistently in the Times Higher Education rankings and ascended two bands from its 2018 position in the 401-450 band. Ahead of us are the well-established Universities of Auckland and Otago, both in the top 250.

 

A major factor in our ranked position this time was our score for citation impact, which was the highest score in New Zealand and very close to the top 100 in the world. The citation score reflects a university’s role in the spread of new knowledge and is based on the average number of times the university’s published work is cited by other authors globally.

 

We also retain the top position in the country for international outlook, which is scored as a composite of the proportions of international academic staff, international students, and internationally co-authored research outputs.

 

The Times Higher Education ranking is a rigorous system that assesses more than 1,250 research intensive universities – selected from the estimated 26,000 universities in the world.

 

Times Higher Education stated in their press release:

 

It’s highly encouraging to see such a strong performance from AUT this year – at less than 20 years old, it’s been a swift rise, and to become a global top 350 university is hugely impressive.”

Bachelor Food Technology

I am contacting all local schools in an attempt to inform Year 13 students who have yet to make up their minds about university study, to consider a B. Food Tech(hons) degree programme. We have students graduating this year being offered multiple jobs. We cannot train enough for the food industry so are seeking to increase our intake of students for 2019.

The following story may be of interest to pass to students considering their options http://www.massey.ac.nz/massey/about-massey/news/article.cfm?mnarticle_uuid=89866076-7C9B-4FE9-9BB8-236B1D4F20C6
