We’re welcoming another intake of students to Auckland City and Otago Polytechnic Auckland International Campus this week.

We’ve held our Orientation events over two days this Study Block to accommodate our large number of new student arrivals.

Yesterday, we welcomed our Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Management and Master of Applied Management students. Today we are welcoming students in all other programmes including English, Construction, and Information Technology.

Academic Director Sean Bell addressed our new students saying he was proud to welcome them to the campus and his hometown.

Sean talked about OPAIC’s mission to build capability for a global workforce and our vision of creating New Zealand’s most employable graduates.

Our success comes from following an experiential learning model to meet our high academic standards, he said.

“Being able to apply your learning to new contexts and situations - that is your passport to the global workforce,” he said.  

Our morning Orientation activities included a formal welcome from staff and mihi whakatau, presentations about our facilities, services, and events, a campus tour, and an IT induction.

In the afternoon, students had the opportunity to attend an introduction to employability services available and academic orientations for each programme area.

We look forward to seeing all new and returning students on campus next week for the beginning of Study Block 2.
