In our commitment to building an inclusive Aotearoa/New Zealand and in recognition of the value of te reo me ngā tikanga Māori, AUT University offers Māori language beginner to intermediate courses as a nil-tuition fee programme.
The nil-tuition fee is available to domestic and international students. The nil-tuition fee applies to the Introduction to Conversational Māori, Te Kākano I, Te Kākano II, Te Pihinga I, Te Pihinga II.
If you fail the paper but want to re-enrol you may do so but required to pay the full tuition fee.
The beginner courses will follow themes which will reinforce grammar and vocabulary but will be sufficiently general to enable you to have not studied Te Reo Māori before to participate and benefit.
Intermediate oral and written skills in Te Reo Māori are developed from the beginner courses. Listening and reading comprehension skills are advanced through interactive activities.916106 Te Pihinga I
