If we cannot assist you directly, we will put you in touch with those that can.

Science Help

These are small group weekly tutorials (4 to 8 students) which are additional to the mainstream tutorials offered in all first year science courses.

Students sign up for these in the first weeks of each semester. Contact Kevin Eastwood for more information.

Te Pūtahi o Te Manawa (Whānau support)

He ao te rangi ka uhia he huruhuru te manu ka tau
He mātauranga te hinengaro ka whārikihia
Whaiā kia ū ki uta
kia ū ki tahaki

The Faculty of Science and Engineering values the input of Māori students and encourages them to reach the highest levels in Science. To help support Māori students, the Te Pūtahi o Te Manawa programme was established. Tautoko (support) is given from kaitiaki who are graduate students enrolled in a Masters or Doctorate degree in Science. The system is based on a kanohi ki te kanohi (face to face) approach where kaitiaki are to maintain regular contact with students. This service is free for students to use, just register using the online form.
