The moment you graduate from AUT, you become part of our alumni community. Here are some of the benefits and services we offer to our alumni.
Employability and careers support
AUT employability and careers support doesn't stop at graduation. We offer ongoing help and resources to alumni.
CareerHub online portal
You can use our online portal AUT CareerHub to:
- Search for jobs relevant to your studies and qualifications and ongoing studies
- Register for employability workshops and employer events, including career fairs
- Book an appointment with one of our employability or career specialists
- Browse and use our career resources, including the CV drop box and interview stream
Access to CareerHub
When you graduate, your status automatically changes from ‘student’ to ‘graduate’ on CareerHub. This then gives you ongoing access, although it will disable after a year if you have not accessed it. You can email our administrator to have your access reinstated.
Alumni CO.STARTERS scholarships
Have an idea you think could turn into a business? At AUT we want to make it easier for anyone with a business idea to get started. So we're offering subsidised scholarships for AUT alumni to take part in the highly successful CO.STARTERS programme.
CO.STARTERS equips aspiring entrepreneurs with the insights, relationships, and tools needed to take the next step in building a sustainable business. It's run part time (3 hours per week) over 9 weeks, so you don't need to give up the day job (just yet, anyway), to be able to take part.
Discounted gym membership
You can get an alumni discount on multi-gym membership for our gyms at the City, North and South campuses. Membership includes group fitness classes, plus use of the indoor stadium and Golf Swing Clinic on the North Campus.
Free library membership
Associate Library Membership is free for AUT alumni. Check the library website for details on how to apply.
AUTSA ski lodge accommodation
AUT alumni have year-round access to the AUTSA Lodge in National Park Village, close to the Ruapehu ski fields.
Discounted tickets for Breakfast Club events
AUT alumni have access to the Breakfast Club speaker events, with 10% off event tickets. Recent Breakfast Club speakers include the founder of GrabOne Shane Bradley, ASB CEO Barbara Chapman, Ryman Healthcare CFO Gordon MacLeod, New Zealand Oil & Gas CEO Andrew Knight and Prime Minister Bill English.
