The University of Auckland

The University of Auckland began as a constituent college of the University of New Zealand, founded on 23 May 1883 as Auckland University College. Stewardship of the University during its establishment period was the responsibility of John Chapman Andrew (Vice Chancellor of the University of New Zealand 1885–1903). Housed in a disused courthouse and jail, it started out with 95 students and 4 teaching staff: Frederick Douglas Brown, professor of chemistry (London and Oxford); Algernon Phillips Withiel Thomas, professor of natural sciences (Oxford); Thomas George Tucker, professor of classics (Cambridge); and William Steadman Aldis, professor of mathematics (Cambridge). By 1901, student numbers had risen to 156; the majority of these students were training towards being law clerks or teachers and were enrolled part-time. From 1905 onwards, an increasing number of students enrolled in commerce studies.

The University conducted little research until the 1930s, when there was a spike in interest in academic research during the Depression. At this point, the college's executive council issued several resolutions in favour of academic freedom after the controversial dismissal of John Beaglehole (allegedly for a letter to a newspaper where he publicly defended the right of communists to distribute their literature), which helped encourage the college's growth.

ICL Business School

Most of our students have one of two objectives: either academic or employment. Some are looking for an internationally recognised qualification, possibly leading to an academic pathway to a Bachelor, Master’s or Doctorate. Others are hoping to work for a while in New Zealand, and if they qualify, settle permanently in this beautiful country of opportunity. With both academic and employment objectives, an undergraduate, graduate or Postgraduate diploma from ICL Graduate Business School will help you achieve your ambition.

Education changes as fast as the world does, and when you select your study destination it is important to find innovation as well as a tradition of quality. In New Zealand you will find both: an excellent British-based academic heritage, with universities over 100 years old, and a dynamic, modern education system constantly adapting to the change and growth in our multicultural society. And at ICL, within this traditional yet dynamic environment, we offer the perfect combination of private sector service standards, and the academic guarantee of qualifications approved by the New Zealand government. Our mission includes helping you ‘develop learner autonomy’; At ICL you take ownership of your education. Your lecturers guide you, with enthusiasm and professional skill, in the direction of your learning objectives. However, you must do your work, both in class and through self-study. Think of your lecturer as the conductor and your class as the orchestra. The conductor directs you, but you and your classmates make the music! I look forward to meeting you at ICL Graduate Business School and helping you succeed.
