Undergraduate Orientation

Students are asked to assemble at the John Hood Plaza by 8.30am. At 8.45am you will be led as a group into the powhiri for your welcome by John Hosking, Dean, Faculty of Science.

After some fun and games with the UniGuide programme, students are shown to the Faculty of Science welcome session where our inspiring teaching staff will present tips on learning and time management.

Throughout Orientation day, you will have the opportunity to:

  • complete the compulsory DELNA Screening

  • take a break to enjoy lunch
  • attend the Science Expo, where you'll meet staff and students from your faculty, browse the departments, join the wide variety of faculty clubs and get to know some of your classmates
  • attend your departmental welcome session - a detailed schedule of these sessions will be available in the Science Centre foyer.
