The Tuākana Programme is designed to assist Māori and Pasifika students to achieve their full academic potential. Each Stage 1 course is assigned a Tuākana (tutor/mentor) who runs weekly study groups in which you can get to connect with other students, discuss lecture and lab material and clarify anything you are not sure about. Essay, test and exam workshops are also organised as needed.
Stage 2 courses are also supported, with study sessions or office hours tailored to suit and a focus on internal coursework.
Make sure you look us up on Facebook (Environment Tuākana) and join our group to get all the recent updates.
Past students who joined our Tuākana Programme found it enjoyable to study in a collaborative environment and achieved some great results.
Maria Hokopaura is Programme Coordinator. If you have any questions about how the programme works, or how to get involved, please contact her. Information about the Tuākana, weekly study groups and other notices can be found on the noticeboard outside Te Pūnanga (301.188).
