Student Support /

The University of Auckland

The Māori value of manaakitanga (caring for the community) is heavily integrated into New Zealand culture and the University applies this approach to care equally for every student. New Zealand is also the only country in the world with an International Student Wellbeing Strategy along with government regulations on the provision of pastoral care, which demonstrates the value placed on student welfare.
