Community Engagement and Consultancies

At undergraduate and postgraduate level there are a variety of ways that you can build on your classroom learning. Our activities and projects are designed specifically for you to put theory into practice. This page has links to supported sites that range from AUT's student radio station and student journalism to not-for-profit public relations projects.

Asia Pacific Report

Asia Pacific Report is a joint international community media non-profit venture between Multimedia Investments Ltd ( and AUT’s Pacific Media Centre. A core of the content is provided by postgraduate student journalists on the PMC’s Asia-Pacific Journalism Studies course in the School of Communication Studies at Auckland University of Technology. Other academics, community commentators and journalists also contribute.

Outside the Square

Student-run public relations consultancy. Each year, from July to November, AUT’s final-year PR students run their own Public Relations Agency called Outside the Square. This unique programme has helped hundreds of not-for-profit organisations achieve excellent PR results often for little or no budget.

Pacific Media Watch

Pacific Media Watch is an Asia-Pacific media freedom digital repository gathered and published by staff and postgraduate students at AUT's Pacific Media Centre and contributing journalists from around the Pacific region.

Static FM (student radio)

Static 88.1 FM is AUT's student radio station, run by year-three students of the Bachelor of Communication Studies majoring in radio. The students are involved in the day-to-day operation of the radio station, including managing the station, developing the playlist, writing and producing all elements of on-air content and also promoting the station.

Te Waha Nui

Te Waha Nui Online is the sister publication to AUT’s training newspaper Te Waha Nui, published out of the university’s longstanding and celebrated journalism programme. The site publishes the work of journalism students on the Bachelor of Communication Studies and Post-graduate Diploma in Communication Studies.
