Wānanga Onsite Talanoa (WOT) weeks

These WOT weeks are compulsory and provide a great opportunity to get together with fellow students and participate in casework sessions under the guidance of your lecturer.

To help facilitate your learning we use case scenarios relating to every day, contemporary issues and provide a wonderfully supportive forum for group discussion, interaction and reflection.

If you study part-time you will only need to attend the days allocated to the specific course you're studying at the time.
