Tautoko mā ngā ākonga Māori

Ākonga Māori

We value the contribution ākonga Māori bring to Whitireia and WelTec. To assist you to complete your course of study successfully, we have the Tamaiti Whāngai and Te Āti Awa team at WelTec, and Te Wānanga Māori, Te Awarua and Ngāti Toa Rangatira at Whitireia. Our teams support all ākonga, regardless of their campus of study.

We have dedicated spaces (location below) for ākonga Māori wanting friendly and welcoming places to study, socialise, to get advice and support, advocacy needs and Mental Health services.
