Te Wānanga o Aotearoa Courses
We offer flexible learning opportunities designed to meet the diverse circumstances of the communities we serve.
We have eleven main campuses and more than 80 sites throughout Aotearoa New Zealand where you can study a wide range of programmes from certificate to degree level. Many of these programmes can be studied part-time during weekdays, in the evening, at the weekend or from home.
All our programmes are delivered in a uniquely Māori environment and are based on a teaching method called Ako Whakatere, which provides an inclusive, interactive and nurturing learning experience.
As a whānau-based organisation, we support all our students on their journeys towards achieving their full potential. Te Wānanga o Aotearoa also provides a range of fee-free programmes that you can study from home through Open Wānanga. These programmes are offered at levels 1-4 and include NZQA recognised certificates and qualifications in topics such as Māori culture and language, New Zealand history, financial literacy, study skills and career pathways. All home-based Open Wānanga programmes include a kaitiaki (support person) to help you with your studies.
Open Wānanga also delivers classroom-based English language studies. Whether you want to dig deeper into te ao Māori, brush up your computer skills, start a new business or simply expand your horizons, you will find something in this prospectus to help you achieve your goals.
