How to enrol online

You are able to enrol online and upload documentation using our student portal Urutauira.


To start, you will first need to register for an Urutauira account which will give you access to our student portal.

You will need an email address to complete your online enrolment. If you don't have one, you can create a free email address at domains such as Google and Microsoft Live.

  • Urutauira can be accessed via the enrol button at the top of each page.

Once you have set-up and logged into your Urutauira account, click on 'online enrolment' on the left-hand navigation menu where you can commence your online enrolment application.

It will take approximately 20 minutes to complete if you have all of the required information.  To complete your form you will need to have on hand:

Personal details

Details of your previous education

Your National Student Number (NSN)

Your Awanuiārangi Student Number (if you have enrolled with us previously)
