Tuākana is an academic support programme for our Māori and Pacific students to enhance academic success during your studies.

2020 Creative Arts and Industries Tuākana

Tuākana at Creative Arts and Industries

Our team of senior mana moana students (tuākana) are dedicated to supporting you (teina) to enhance success during your studies. 

We organise academic drop-in sessions with kai, regular workshops within your discipline and across the Faculty, and assignment / examination wānanga to aid you in your studies. We have shared kai and korero throughout the year to foster whakawhanaungatanga within the Faculty.

Tuākana Manaakitanga

Tuākana Manaakitanga provides financial assistance for our students who are facing hardship or need support, and can help link to the broader University community.


We hold a range of events for Māori and Pacific students throughout the year, from noho marae to wānanga to cultural celebrations.
