The three-day WaiBoost programme is aimed at undergraduate students whose grades do not reflect their academic potential. Student referrals are made by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, Faculty of Education, and Te Piringa — Faculty of Law.

WaiBoost covers time management, interpreting an assignment task, academic reading, creating notes from readings, taking notes during lectures, summarising and paraphrasing, academic argument, using the library, and using digital technologies.

Students must attend all sessions to complete the programme and will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.
