To Help Students, Help Themselves


Tātai Aronui is a committed student support service caring for all new and current Māori students who are studying in Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao - Faculty of Māori and Indigenous Studies (FMIS). We are here to assist you throughout your course of studies by providing academic assistance; personal and procedural assistance (e.g., scholarships information and help with scholarship applications, applying for extensions and programme planning); and a referral service for additional information about other services on campus. Here at the University there are also many opportunities for you to develop physically, spiritually, mentally and intellectually through Māori-focused events such as; kapa haka, pōwhiri, kai tahi, hākinakina etc.

We are available from Monday to Friday and you are welcome to come in and talk to us about anything to do with your studies; University life in general or just to have a kōrero. We are eager to meet you so don't be shy, come on in, call or email! Nau mai haere mai!

Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā anō tātou katoa.
