We've got a few steps to get you ready for study and welcome you to our Unitec whānau (family).
Step One - Be welcomed with a Pōwhiri
All new students are warmly welcomed to Unitec with a pōwhiri, or traditional Māori welcome ceremony. Check out what happens at our pōwhiri ahead of time so you can understand and enjoy this special experience.
After your officially part of the community we'll grab a bite to eat, sort you out with a survival pack packed with goodies and take you on a campus tour so you know your way around. We'll end up in Student Central to allow you to sort any last minute enrolment details and issue your Student ID card so you're ready to go on day one!
Step 2 - Come to first day of class
You'll get an email letting you know where you first day in class will be, but plan to be on campus the first day of semester. The programme that you're studying will run a Day One session with you that'll provide you all the detail you need to succeed with study and connect you with others in your class.
Step 3 – Enjoy life on Campus
Throughout the first week of each semester we host a range of social events to help you settle in and meet other students and staff. Check out our events page to find the full list of activities and events that are held throughout the year.
