Get ready for uni with Summer Start

September 17, 2021

The University of Auckland runs a series of programmes to prepare students for their tertiary study and uni life.

Summer Start is a six-week programme for eligible school leavers (5 Jan – 16 Feb 2022) that will help you make the transition to university with confidence ahead of Semester One 2022.

We know that sometimes it can feel challenging when you’re new to university. Summer Start sets you up for success in your first year by helping you get familiar with all the ins and outs of uni life, from tutorials to exams and everything in between! It’s a great opportunity to make the most of the summer and gain the skills you need to survive and thrive at university.

If you’re looking for an easy way to settle into university – and the chance to have some fun while doing it – then this is the programme for you. You’ll gain credit towards your studies, make heaps of new friends and learn to navigate your way around campus. We’ve got dozens of social events you can attend outside of class time too, with everything from sports competitions to outdoor movies to quiz challenges.

Over the six-week programme, you’ll complete one course from the 2022 Summer Start course list that will go towards your University of Auckland degree programme before Semester One classes start on 28 February 2022. There’s a diverse range of courses to choose from, and we’re sure we can find one that’s right for you. Register: Here

As a Summer Start student, you’ll also have access to mentoring and support options to help you get the most out of your studies. Whatever your future goals are, we have the options available to help you achieve them.
