Tai Tokerau students

A supportive learning environment

Your success in your chosen programme of study is important to us. We also want to make sure your study journey is an enjoyable one. At Tai Tokerau Campus we offer a range of support services and facilities to help you succeed.

All students have access to academic support, and other specialist services are available. At Tai Tokerau Campus there is a student common room, an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) suite, and a branch of the faculty’s Sylvia Ashton-Warner library − one of the most extensive teacher education libraries in New Zealand.

The small and friendly campus atmosphere at Tai Tokerau means you can have close connections with lecturers and staff as well as fellow students. You’ll find it easy to approach people for the support you need.

First Year Experience Programme

In your first year you will be assigned a student mentor through the First Year Experience Programme (FYE). Your mentor can support you as you make the transition to university study and student life. The first year of university study can be challenging as you attempt to balance the demands of study, work, family and friends. Having a mentor has been proven to help transition successfully into the University environment.
