Lead and inspire the next generation

Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi

Study in Auckland!

Meet Raukura Edwards who shares “I loved the experience of studying, I felt at home at Awanuiārangi.

The lecturers are amazing. Being able to learn online and through block learning was so much more efficient for me as a working Māmā. I was able to work, look after my tamariki and gain a degree at the same time. We supported each other to get over the line. I’m studying for a Master’s now and I’m learning so much more. I love it!”

You too can help facilitate the learning journey of future leaders. Study with us in 2020!
