The University of Auckland is working with government officials to ensure our overseas students can join us in Auckland for on-campus study as soon as it is safe to do so.

However, many overseas international students will be still be studying with us remotely in one of the following capacities:

  • China Learning Centre – North Forestry University or (NF)
  • China Learning Centre – Southwest University (SW)
  • International Students who are overseas and enrolled online (Offshore Online – OO)
  • Domestic students who are overseas and enrolled online (NZ Online – NO)

Within your Canvas course new sections have been created which show the new student classes with using the new campus codes – NF and SW for China Learning Centres, OO for Offshore Online:

There is also a detailed Quick Reference Guide which includes how to check enrolments in SSO (CS9).

Please note:

  • The standard enrolment deadlines apply for students studying remotely.
  • Incorrect enrolments should be assigned to Records, Enrolment and Fees ( to be corrected.


Please refer to the Remote Learning site for guidance on managing offshore students within your course.
