Meet Sharlene Peri (Te Uri o Tai, Tainui) who shares “Studying at Awanuiārangi felt like being at home on my marae. It is welcoming, the facilities are exceptional (the library is incredible!) and it became a safe space to learn and grow.

I wanted a degree that would give me a relevant qualification with which to pursue whānau, hapū and iwi gains. From day one on the Humanities degree programme, I was blown away by the calibre, expertise and knowledge of the lecturers. I also appreciated having the flexibility of choosing a Major in policy or indigenous business”
