Student Success Programme

Kia Angitu

20 November 2023

The first year at university can be the hardest. Whether you are coming straight from secondary school, or you have been in the workforce, transitioning to study can be tough. Learn how UC's Kia Angitu | Student Success Programme can help make the transition easier.


Kia Angitu, UC’s student success programme, focuses on the early experiences of students at UC. It brings together a range of initiatives to help students transition into their first year and make the most of their studies.

These initiatives work together to remove barriers and create an environment that gives students the opportunity to thrive and succeed. They pay particular care and attention to the journey of students who are Māori, Pasifika, have disabilities, are first in their whānau to attend university, and students from low-decile schools or a low-income background.
