Student Experience Team
The Student Experience Team helps make your life on campus more fun with sports, cultural, and social activities!
The highlight is our Orientation events but there are all sorts of things throughout the year like:
- competitions; instagram comps, quiz nights, bake-offs, and more
- “Take a Paws from Study” - the SPCA bring in puppies for you to play with, to ease stress
- international festival celebrations
- Guinness Book of Record attempts
- sports events
- music events
- art and fashion shows
- you name it, we’ve done it (and if we haven’t - let us know!)
Be a Winner on Social Media!
Join us on Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube for competitions and all sorts of fun stuff.

Become a Class Rep!
Consider becoming a class rep. You’ll represent your peers in meetings and discussion forums to help improve the quality of education and campus life for all students.
Being a class rep is a great opportunity to develop leadership and communication skills (an awesome thing to have on your CV!) and training is provided.
If you would like to become a student class representative, email our Student Experience Team (contact details at the bottom of this page).
Free (yes, FREE) breakfast, once a week during term time for current students. Ask the team for more info!

Student Pulse Buddy Programme
Make friends from around the world! Our campuses are buzzing with students from all parts of the world and most are newcomers to New Zealand.
Sign up to be a buddy through Student Pulse online or Moodle (type in the word ‘BUDDY’ on the moodle search bar) and enjoy one-on-one exchange and support during the study term. You’ll learn more about your buddy’s country and culture while you teach them about New Zealand’s.
The Student Experience team distributes an annual wall planner which is always popular, and free to students. Ask for yours at the Student Experience office.
