Orientation

Students will attend orientation events for new students during the week before classes begin. The university hosts a Pōwhiri, an official welcome for all new students which bridges the gap between the manuhiri (visitors) to make them one with the tangata whenua (home people). Afterwards, students attend a range of programs and sessions introducing them to their program’s campus and faculty. Additional events are held specifically for international students.

Number of Students

Almost 42,000 students attend the University of Auckland
