Aim and achieve at Auckland International College
If you aim high and believe that you can achieve your dream then it is likely to happen at Auckland International College.
With no geographical limitations to their thinking, students at AIC apply to the world’s top-ranked universities and succeed in gaining admission.
In only their third year of existence as a senior high school the college has accomplished outstanding results.
AIC graduates are currently studying at universities such as Cambridge, MIT and Princeton.
How do students identify the universities they aspire to?
The Times Education Supplement World University Rankings is the most authoritative university ranking system in educational circles.
And the top 50 universities identified are the destinations of choice for AIC students.
To help bring dreams to fruition, not only are teachers IB Diploma educators.
Most are returning New Zealanders with international educational experience.
The college also employs specialist university counsellors to familiarise and support students with the global university application process.
Therefore students’ dreams become reality.
In New Zealand the University of Auckland, currently ranked on the world rankings list at number 50, is in their sights.
In only three years of operation most Auckland International College students have received offers from most of the world’s top 50 universities.

In the first graduating class of 2006 AIC graduate Naomi Jones received offers from two of the top 10 universities – Cambridge and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She chose to attend Cambridge and as part of her physics programme is on a university exchange at MIT before returning to Cambridge to continue with her studies.
The results from the present year 13 students are similarly impressive.
