The Pacific Development Team runs a number of different events throughout the year to ensure good engagement with our students. From fun social events to academic events, we do our best to deliver the best for our students. Please explore each page for more information. For any information regarding events, contact our Pacific Engagement Coordinator.
An orientation event, Get FRESH is a one-day fun-packed programme introducing all first-year Pacific students to UC, designed to give you the best possible start to your first year at university.
To celebrate the start of a new academic year, a Pasifika welcome is held every year on Saturday at the end of the first week of lectures, bringing together all first-year and returning Pacific students and their families.
PASS Learning Skills are provided by the Academics Skills Centre staff, specifically for Pasifika students who want that extra edge when studying at UC.
Old Skool Dinners are social evenings for our mature or adult students, it is an opportunity for these students to get together, unwind and escape the stress and pressure of exams, research and or writing.
To assist students with preparation for their exams, the Pacific Development Team organises study sessions where rooms and computer labs are booked for students to use. This is a great way to motivate you to get out of the house, and into university to study!
