Orientation

Nau mai, Haere mai and welcome new students to MIT.

Our orientations are a range of awesome events designed to give you the best possible start and welcome to MIT. 

From your pōwhiri/whakatau, to onboarding and tech-ready sessions, to meet other new students and MIT staff, we're here to welcome you into the MIT family. These are events not to be missed and are here to help prepare you for your time at MIT and to make sure you're study ready for day one.

You can also like and follow the Student Life at Manukau Facebook page to stay up to date with the latest student news, activities and events happening on campus.

We look forward to welcoming you into the MIT family and being there for you throughout your study journey.
