At UC we are committed to biculturalism. That’s a good thing for Aotearoa New Zealand, and a good thing for you too. As part of this commitment we work with Ngāi Tahu, the tangata whenua in our region. At UC you’ll gain bicultural perspectives and experience in your courses of study through engaging with course content, ideas and activities in your chosen subjects. You can also take specific courses on Māori language, culture, art, and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
“I'd love to see an Aotearoa New Zealand that’s truly bilingual one day. Language is a window into culture and perspective, and I admire many aspects of te ao Māori.”
“I'm a Pacifika/Māori student so I get support from the Pacific and Māori Development Teams as well. They offer a lot of resources and as many tutorials as I want to go to.”
