Talk to us

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

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 30 August (between 9am and 4.30pm) by emailing with your preferred time or by calling 0800 VICTORIA (842 867).

You can also check out a sample of our 160+ student clubs at the Club Zone in the Recreation Centre, between 10am and 2pm.

There will be interactive stands and student performances happening throughout the day in Level 1 of the Hub, so make sure you check these out too.
