Another 179 students joined the Otago Polytechnic Auckland International Campus family this week.
Today’s Orientation activities took place at The Maritime Room of the New Zealand Maritime Museum in Auckland.
The day began with a welcome from staff and a word from OPAIC Chief Executive Gagan Sachdeva.
Gagan said the students, from about 16 different countries, had an exciting journey of learning and growth ahead of them.
Students were then introduced to department heads and managers. They also met the Student Success, Facilities, and Marketing teams.
This afternoon’s agenda includes presentations from the New Zealand Police, Southern Cross Travel Insurance and Asian Family Services.
The new students will be on campus tomorrow and the next day where they’ll be introduced to their programmes and lecturers.
Other Orientation activities include an IT induction, a session on APA referencing and some employability workshops.
