Online Future Student Evening

Unfortunately this year, we have not be able to hold many of our planned in person Future Student Evenings for students and whānau. In order to be able to offer our Future Student Evening to those areas where we were unable to visit in person this year, we will be hosting a virtual Future Student Evening and welcome all students and their whānau to attend.

The evening will consist of presentations from our SPO team, the office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Māori), the office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Pacific) and representatives from our Campus Life team.

2021 University Entrance for School Leavers

Covid-19 has had a significant impact on New Zealand secondary school students, especially those making plans to start University. To support the future success of senior school students, we’ll be changing the entry requirements to our programmes for 2021. We are also removing Table A and B requirements and making Early Offers for all students.
