Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences


The Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences is spread across two of the University's satellite campuses, Grafton and Tāmaki.

The University also shares a close relationship with New Zealand's finest specialist hospitals through strategic alliances with major District Health Boards, providing students with unparalleled access to environments of clinical excellence. It also shares a teaching and practice partnership with Auckland's original private hospital, Mercy Ascot.

Some of our courses are also taught on the City Campus.

Grafton Campus


Grafton Campus is situated in the central city suburb of Grafton, opposite Auckland Hospital and adjacent to the Auckland Domain.

The campus is home to students from the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, the Bachelor and Certificate in Health Sciences, and also those from the Bachelors of Pharmacy and Nursing.

Grafton Campus also hosts biomedical science undergraduates, many of whom continue on to doctoral study in the faculty. Ground-breaking discoveries made by faculty researchers are strongly facilitated by Grafton Campus, due to many state-of-the-art (and often custom-built) research facilities.

Grafton Campus also houses stunning amenities that include a licenced café, a dedicated Student Centre and an Information Commons with over 100 new computers for student use. Where possible, departments also provide computer resources and study spaces for students. The campus also has a specialist medical library (the Philson) and a Student Health Centre.
