On Monday selected Year 13 students spent the day at The University of Auckland where they were treated to a tour of the university campus. The students took part in the NIU Mentoring Programme for Māori and Pacific students, helping them transition into university life and achieve academic success.
The students attended a lecture and were introduced to some of the associations and support groups available on campus. Head Girl Valerie enjoyed the event and familiarising herself with the university, in particular the Faculty of Engineering where she plans to study in 2018. She said “It was good to hear from and connect with first year students who gave us tips on what to expect and explained how different it is to high school”.
Careers Week offers a wide range of activities and events and is a great opportunity for students to talk with a number of universities, polytechnics and other education providers.
