“The Albany campus is New Zealand’s northern most university environment; it is modern, purpose built and most importantly it is personal.

“We now have more than 4000 students but we have not lost our level of personal concern for student welfare and successful study. We welcome students from the Northland area who are considering going to university, to come in and identify the advantages that study with us offers.”
