Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to Te Papa Ako o Tai Tonga, the South Auckland Campus of Aotearoa New Zealand’s world-ranked University*, Waipapa Taumata Rau University of Auckland.

Our graduates are leaders in their professions, and their communities. It is my pleasure to welcome you to one of the Pacific’s leading teaching and research universities, here in the heart of Manukau. We are offering a range of programmes for those beginning their learning journey as school leavers, as well as those continuing their journey and wanting to return to study to further their career or take it in a new direction.

A variety of oral histories explain the origins of the name Manukau, including the description of many birds flying and flocking together. It’s an apt metaphor for our campus where we hope to inspire you to gather together with your fellow students and staff, and to soar towards academic excellence.

I look forward to meeting you here.
