Entry to University

The AUT Certificate in Foundation Studies prepares students for entry to AUT, an UP Education university.

University Entrance (UE) requires a pass rate of 50% in each subject made up of four compulsory papers (English I and II, Culture & Society, Tertiary Study Skills), and four optional academic papers.

For degree specific requirements, please refer to the AUT University Certificate in Foundation Studies prospectus.

Two offers of place from the start

Students who enrol in the AUT University Certificate in Foundation Studies will receive two offers of place – a letter of offer for the foundation course and a conditional offer of place for the AUT University.  A confirmed offer of place will be issued by the AUT University when students have successfully completed the Certificate in Foundation Studies.
