Induction Days 2019

All new students are required to attend the relevant Induction Day to learn more about the Faculty of Education and Social Work and the University.

Our Induction Days begin with a pōwhiri/ welcome, followed by activities and information sessions that will help prepare you for the year ahead. You will be introduced to our faculty's support services, meet your mentors, and get an overview of the facilities available to you here at the faculty. You will also have the chance to meet your fellow students.

Follow the links below for more information on Induction Days for programmes and campuses.
