Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi indigenous-university has established a number of important relationships that enable us to make provisions for Māori students and communities nationally.
These relationships are with the following groups:
Te Tauihu o Ngā Wānanga
Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi is one of three Wānanga in New Zealand. Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, Te Wānanga o Raukawa, and Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi have formed Te Tauihu o Ngā Wānanga to represent the sector, to ensure collaboration and coordination, and to maintain the Māori student focus as the main kaupapa.
In 2009, Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi established a formal partnership with Unitec and now runs programmes on Unitec’s Mt Albert site. Improved student pathways between the two institutions are under development and many other benefits for students at both institutions are under discussion.
University of Waikato
In 2010, Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi established a formal tripartite relationship with the University of Waikato and Bay of Plenty Polytechnic. This arrangement is the basis for improved programme opportunities for students across the wider central North Island region.
Bay of Plenty Polytechnic
The formal relationship between Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi and Bay of Plenty Polytechnic predates the 2010 tripartite relationship mentioned above. As a result, the two institutions already jointly run research programmes and share sites for the delivery of programmes.
Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi established a formal relationship with Northtec in 2009 and began delivering graduate and undergraduate programmes at Northtec’s Whangarei campus in 2010. The two institutions are exploring the potential to deliver other programmes in Whangarei and other Northtec sites in Northland.
Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT)
Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi established a formal relationship with MIT in 2009 and is working with MIT on potential programme delivery in South Auckland to better meet student needs.
