Summer Start at the University of Auckland

Summer Start is a six-week programme (Tuesday 5 January – Wednesday 17 February 2021) giving eligible school leavers the opportunity to gain credits towards their degree and start their university journey early. For Year 13 students planning to study at university in 2021, this is great opportunity to experience life at the University.

Students from outside the Auckland area who are thinking about applying for the Summer Start programme may be eligible for a University of Auckland Summer Start Scholarship to assist with accommodation. Applications will close on 20 November at midday.

The Summer Start programme is free for New Zealand school leaver students who meet the eligibility requirements of the New Zealand government’s Fees Free tertiary education initiative. Applications for Summer Start will close Tuesday 1 December with an on-campus event to be held on 10 and 11 December.

Students that register their interest will be contacted directly by a student adviser from the University of Auckland to speak with them about their pathway into their programme of choice.
