Do you want to build on your current skills and develop the academic skills needed for study? Our FREE Tūāpapa micro-credentials will support your academic achievement and can be done either before your programme of study, or alongside your study. We recommend that micro-credentials are completed before your programme of study.

What you will learn

Tūāpapa micro-credentials provide short, engaging, interactive learning. If you do these before you begin your programme of study they will be completed over a 4-6 week period and up to 3 micro-credentials can be taken at a time.

The micro-credentials available are:

  • Academic writing Level 2 (5 credits)
  • Academic skills Level 3 (8 credits)
  • Academic skills Level 4 (8 credits)
  • The cardiovascular and pulmonary system Level 3 (5 credits)
  • The homeostasis system and cells Level 4 (5 credits)
  • The immune system Level 4 (5 credits)

All micro-credentials except for The immune system begins Monday, 29 May.

Flexible study options

You can study either fully online or you can choose to study online and attend optional tutorials at the Porirua campus/online. Content will be delivered via Moodle (our online learning platform). This will require you to have a computer/laptop and internet access at home. A tutor will be there to support you on your journey through the micro-credentials.

Completion of the Tūāpapa micro-credentials will not affect your fees free eligibility.

Entry requirements

These micro-credentials are in place for ākonga who have enrolled in a Whitireia or WelTec programme.

How to apply

You can apply for your programme through the online application form as normal. During the application process you may be recommended to complete micro-credentials or you may choose to complete micro-credentials to support your study success.
