Other universities accepting ACG students

All New Zealand Universities accept the AUT University Certificate in Foundation Studies qualification as meeting University Entrance. Over 20,000 students have been through the Foundation Studies programmes delivered by ACG.  The majority of these students plan to continue with their original choice of university. 

This is certainly our hope for students. However, for a few students each year, their circumstances change and they look for a tertiary provider overseas. We are sometimes asked by prospective students what prospects there are for study overseas on completion of Foundation Studies. The list below gives an indication of where some of our students have gone to complete their tertiary study outside New Zealand.
