Our Māori and Pacific students can receive tutorial support, course information and exam workshops through the Tuākana mentoring programme. An established cohort of students and staff will help you to reach your full potential.
Tuākana study rooms
The Faculty of Science has dedicated course-specific study rooms for our Tuākana students to use for individual or small group study.
Alongside tutorials and revision sessions, the study rooms are also a quiet place to relax and focus on the work you need to do. Our Tuākana coordinators will be nearby to answer any questions you may have. Kaua e whakamā – don't be shy, we look forward to meeting you.
