We have some special guests attending to talk about life at Victoria, including Prof Piri Sciascia, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Māori); Prof Jennifer Windsor, Pro Vice-Chancellor of the Faculties; Dr Nikki Hessell, Associate Dean (Equity); fellow students who will share their experiences and successes; and staff from the Faculty Student and Academic Services Offices and other student services, such as Te Pūtahi Atawhai, Student Learning and Careers and Employability.

There will be refreshments along with the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about studying within the Faculties and the diverse opportunities available.
