Check Moodle for specific updates relating to your course, and to communicate with your lecturer(s).

Academic support for students with Covid-19

It’s important that you take time to rest and recover if you test positive for Covid-19. Everyone experiences Covid-19 differently, and we recognise that some people’s ability to study from home is impacted by factors alongside Covid-19.

We recommend you let your course coordinator/lecturer know if you have tested positive for Covid-19 and it is likely to impact your ability to complete course work. First year students should contact their Study Advisor, you can find details on MyWaikato or the WaikatoUni app. They may be able to help you by providing an extension, or other support.

If you are unable to complete an assessment then see the information below on special consideration to see if that applies to your situation.

Assessments and Special Consideration

If Covid-19 is affecting your ability to complete an assessment, please contact your lecturer about what support you may be eligible for, or if you qualify for an extension on the due date.

If you have Covid-19 and are unable to take an examination, or if Covid-19 is affecting your ability to undertake an examination, you may be eligible for Special Consideration. Please contact our Student Centre team: [email protected] or 0800 WAIKATO.

If Covid-19 has significantly impacted you throughout the duration of your paper/s, you may be eligible for a Grade Reconsideration. Please contact our Student Centre team: [email protected] or 0800 WAIKATO
