Online orientation

Nau mai, Haere mai and welcome new students to MIT and to your online orientation.

Due to the current COVID-19 alert level, the safety and wellbeing of our community and MIT whānau has to take priority, so we have made the decision to cancel our onsite Orientation events scheduled for Thursday 18 February and Friday 19 February.

Although you aren't with us in person, the online orientation welcomes you to our institute and provides key information so you can begin your student journey with us positively.

To stay up to date with the latest student news, activities and future events, we recommend that you like and follow the Student Life at Manukau Facebook page.
