E aku titirei o nāianei, e aku manukura o āpōpō, nāia te karanga o Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha e whakamānawa atu ki a koutou. Nau mai, tauti mai ki tō tātou kaupapa, arā ko Aukaha!

Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury is excited to invite you and taiohi Māori in Year 12 to Aukaha Tau 12.

Aukaha Tau 12 is an opportunity to experience life on campus as ākonga Māori, with a chance to attend mini lectures and meet current Tuākana.

Aukaha kia kaha!

Bind the lashings of a waka together so that it is strong.

This Ngāi Tahu whakataukī speaks to the importance of strengthening the lashings of a waka before embarking on a voyage to ensure the vessel remains buoyant, safe and strong in its journey. Our programme provides taiohi Māori with the opportunity to strengthen connections, relationships and understandings of the many pathways in tertiary education available before they embark on a potential new journey of learning at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha.

Whakawhanaungatanga is a valued part of our Aukaha Tau 12 programme. Taiohi will meet and share kai with other taiohi Māori, kaimahi and Tuākana (senior Māori students) and learn more about ākonga experiences and life on campus.

In addition, taiohi will gain a better understanding of UC through:

  • attending two mini lectures;
  • engaging with current ākonga Māori on a cultural narrative campus tour;
  • learning more about university entrance requirements
  • applying for scholarships.

Aukaha Tau 12 will include attending two interactive sessions in Arts, Business, Law, Teacher Education , Health Sciences, Engineering or Science. 

Kai will be a part of the day as well as a cultural narrative tour and a student panel with a Q&A session.
