Talk to us

Get course planning advice and visit the expos to talk to people from our faculties, schools, student services, and clubs.

Course planning

Our liaison team visit most secondary schools for course planning, and individual course planning appointments can be made outside of Open Day in our Wellington or Auckland offices.

Course planning sessions are offered at Open Day—see the timetable for when and where these sessions are during the day.

These are group course planning sessions based on degrees where our staff give you guidelines on how to plan your first-year courses.

You can book individual course planning appointments on Thursday 22 August by filling in the online form. If you have any questions, email or call 0800 VICTORIA (842 867).
