The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences is committed to equity support for our diverse student community.

This means ensuring all our students enjoy an inclusive and supportive learning environment that gives them equal opportunities to fulfil their potential and make their contribution.

The schools within the Faculty tailor their support to meet the particular needs of their students. Equity representatives and liaison staff work collaboratively with support services and staff across the Faculty and wider University to facilitate student success in ways that acknowledge and value students’ experience and cultural contexts.

We have targeted initiatives in place to support Māori and Pasifika students and students with disabilities. A range of scholarships and grants are also available to support equitable access to learning across the University. These can be searched on the Scholarships database.

Information about what is available in each school, including contact details for Māori, Pasifika and disability liaison staff can be found on each school’s student support page:
