Māori student support

At AUT we’re dedicated to the success of our Māori students. We offer a range of services and activities to support you during your studies here. These include:

  • Learning mentors who can help you settle in and support you with your studies
  • ‘Whānau spaces’ – areas you can meet others, relax or study on campus
  • Māori student support teams on each campus who can help with questions and advice on personal and study topics

Contact us before you come to AUT

If you want to find out more before you come here, contact one of the team to talk about the support we offer.
