The academic year
The University academic year is made up of semesters:
• Semester 1: late February–late June
• Semester 2: mid-July–mid-November
• Late Year term: early December–early March
• Summer School: early January–late February
Some degree programmes have both Semester 1 and
Semester 2 intakes (see pages 16–17).

Degree structure
Points and courses
A degree programme usually consists of 120 points of full-
time study per academic year. A three-year degree involves
360 points, a four-year degree 480 points, etc.
Most full-time students study eight papers of 10–30
points each per academic year. Generally, students taking
courses with higher points values per paper will study
fewer papers overall.

Majors, minors and specialisations
Choose a specialisation, a single or double major, or a
major and a minor. This is the focus of a large proportion
of a degree programme as the subject is taken to the
most advanced undergraduate stage.

Student stories

     How dreams are realised
     "Because of the differences in the schooling systems of New
     Zealand and Bahrain I needed to do a Foundation Studies course
     to ensure I was prepared to pursue my tertiary education in this
     country," says Bahraini student Mohamed Alansari.
     "I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics and Education,
     followed by an honours degree in Education (with first-class
     honours), a Master of Arts in Education (also with first-class
     honours), and I've now completed a PhD specialisation in the social
     psychology of education.
     "I am a research fellow at the Faculty of Education and Social
     Work at the University of Auckland. As part of my role I give
     lectures on educational and social psychology, research methods
     and improving outcomes for university students.
     "I'm a big dreamer. I see myself in the future taking on a
     challenging leadership role that allows me to have a greater
     impact on how we teach students and cater to their needs at all
     educational levels."
