根據過去的三次人口普查，新西蘭的人口變得更加多樣化、老齡化和城市化。據預測，2017年，隨著新政府實行為期一年的免費學習政策，增加了毛利人、太平洋地區和其他貧困家庭學生的數量，歐洲人口將繼續下降，而毛利人、Pasifika和亞洲人口將增加(奧克蘭大學，2017b)。UoA面臨的挑戰是繼續影響18 - 25歲的年輕人，鼓勵他們繼續深造。高等教育的資助是復雜的，包括學生資助、學生支付的學費和學費補貼。2015/16年度政府用于高等教育的總開支為40.5億元，包括教育和研究經費、學生津貼、行政開支，以及學生貸款制度下的貸款。然而，這限制了大學增加學費，導致2017年UoA學生的人均收入較低。低技能的高技能的角色現在已經取代了類型的機械和數字技術已經嚴重干擾了產品和服務的業務部門,同時技術提高教育和學生的經驗,UoA挑戰提供實踐經驗在國際層面上,需要更多的設施和建筑成本高。UoA還必須確保他們能夠與海外的高等教育和本地的職業教育提供商競爭，以繼續在市場上努力。
<标题> According to the past three census periods, NZ’s population has become more diverse, older and more urbanised. It is predicted that the European population will continue to decline while Maori, Pasifika and Asian population will grow Following the new government’s policy of a year of free study increased the number of Maori, Pacific and other students from deprived backgrounds in 2017 (University of Auckland, 2017b). The challenge for UoA is to continue to influence young people aged 18 to 25 and encourage them to further study.Funding tertiary education is complex and includes student support, tuition fees paid by students, and tuition subsidies. The total government expenditure for tertiary education in 2015/16 was $4.05 billion, including education and research fundings, student allowances, administration costs, and lending under the student loan system The year free education proposed by the government helped domestic students to pursue further studies. However, this limited universities to increase tuition fees which resulted in low-level income per student for UoA in 2017 .The wide use of technology over the past two decades have made existing human skills obsolete. Low-skilled to high-skilled roles have now been replaced by types of machinery and digital technologies have interfered with the products and services number of business sectors While technology enhances education and student experience, UoA is challenged to provide hands-on experience at an international level which requires more facilities and higher building cost. UoA also has to make sure that they can compete with overseas tertiary and local vocational education providers to continue to strive in the market.
