Students Feedback

'Really enjoyed this course! Felt very included and very well treated. Tutorials were very helpful and the tutors were very lovely. The main lecturer was awesome and I would recommend this course.'

'The tutorials were incredible, the lectures were engaging and made me want to come to every lecture. We were clearly informed about how we would be assessed. I felt like the lecturer genuinely wanted us to gain an understanding and learn the content which came across in his lectures and tests.'

'I am currently in my 5th year of University and having taken multiple papers across multiple faculties, MAORI 130G is definitely in my top three papers, if not my favorite paper I've taken at University. I would recommend this paper as a Gen Ed to anyone.'
