This week we are welcoming our largest intake of new students since borders closed last year.
Our new intake includes students throughout the world who will study our new online offerings as well as international students who have been in New Zealand for some time who will study on campus.
The online students are in countries including China, the Philippines, Iran, USA, India, Russia, and South Korea.
The overseas students were welcomed at an online Orientation event yesterday. Today we welcomed our onshore students at an Orientation on campus.
Chief Executive Sam Alavi addressed the group telling them staff would work hard to make sure they got a good education here while also enjoying their time.
Today’s schedule included introductions to staff teams, a campus tour, an employability introduction, and an academic orientation as well as time to socialise over lunch and morning and afternoon tea.
