University of Auckland

New Zealand’s largest and highest ranked university in the QS World Rankings, University of Auckland grew out of its 1883 college of 95 students and four professors to nurture, inspire, and transform tens of thousands of students each year from across New Zealand, Asia-Pacific, and the world. Auckland Uni was the birthplace of programming language R, popular with statisticians and data scientists, and enjoyed economy research and lectures led by Phillips-curve founder William Phillips, the influential economist. Still today teachers at University of Auckland create a vibrant atmosphere in both on- and offline lectures and classes, encouraging active participation and lively discussion that drives students towards success and deepens respect for the essence of what makes people different.
