Awhi Tauira Student Support

Haere tonu ngā mihi ki a koutou katoa kua tae mai ki tēnei Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi. Nō reira nau mai, haere mai ki te whare manaaki o Awhi Tauira kia hāpai nei i ngā āhuatanga maha o ngā akoranga ki tāu e hiahia ai.

Awhi Tauira Student Support provides targeted support and input into all programmes at Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi. Kanohi-ki-te-kanohi (face-to-face) and eWānanga (online) support programmes are available to suit all needs.

One of the immediate benefits to students is whanaungatanga (sense of belonging) that is always present at Awhi Tauira. Support includes academic support as well as support for personal issues which may impact a student’s ability to learn and complete their study.
