Jump Start - summer programme for new students

Are you new to University in 2021? Would you like to start your studies early? Do you want to make Uni friends and boost your study skills?

Join the Jump Start programme - registration will open in October 2020

Hamilton and Tauranga Campuses

January/February 2021


You can take the 1st paper in your degree and get set-up for the rest of your studies; find your way around campus, and make Uni friends all before the end of summer.

There will be a number of 100-level (15 point) papers you can choose from - on the Hamilton Campus and Tauranga Campus. These papers will suit any new undergraduate student.

Jump Start is particularly good for those who have lower NCEA credits (or equivalent) in core areas such as literacy, maths, and science, those who have been out of study for a while, and for those who come from smaller towns.

This programme is also great for those who would like to make friends and ease into understanding the Uni environment and learn core Uni study skills.

Alongside the paper you choose, you will attend sessions teaching you important tertiary study skills, how to use the Uni technology and so much more - all aimed at helping you be successful at University.
