There’s no such thing as a silly question – but there are questions we get asked a lot. If you’re wondering about something, you might find the answer here.
Before the start of Semester One and Two, Massey University runs orientation programmes – these include a Pasifika orientation, which is a great opportunity to meet other Pasifika students, and find out what’s happening.
Details of the Pasifika orientation will be available close to the start of the semester.
You can also contact the Pasifika Learning Advisors to find out more information about the Pasifika Orientation Programme.
If you are studying at Massey for the first time, or you are returning after taking some time off, we recommend that you attend the Pasifika orientation. You will find out important information that will help you make a great start, and you will also get to know some of the Pasifika support staff and other students who can share your experiences. It’s a great way to get to know people on and off campus.
