The Te Tīmatanga Hou Programme


Te Tīmatanga Hou is a foundation certificate which provides a supportive Māori context for people who are considering undertaking a university degree or other tertiary programme, but who wish first to strengthen their academic base. It is intended primarily for people of Māori descent, but consideration will also be given to others who have similar needs, background and ability to contribute, and who will benefit from the special character of the programme.
The programme comprises papers in Māori, Mathematics and English, and a choice of a Government and Society option or a Science option. All students are required to participate in Toi Huarahi and Kapa Haka.
Te Tīmatanga Hou is administered by the Te Tīmatanga Hou Programme Committee, which is responsible to the School of Māori and Pacific Development Board of Studies.
Enrolments are limited. Enquiries and applications should be referred to the Te Tīmatanga Hou office.
