This is a list of the universities in New Zealand, of which there are eight. Many of the universities are descended from the former University of New Zealand, a federal university that existed from 1870 to 1961. In 2013, the universities provided tertiary education to over 180,000 students or 132,553 equivalent full-time students (EFTS).[1]
