What makes us Unique?
There are many differences between mainstream tertiary education and Te Wananga o Aotearoa. The Wananga programmes are generally very practical with a supportive Maori based environment for new learners.
Teaching methods are specifically geared to support a vast range of learning styles and the student artwork around all the campuses gives it a unique atmosphere. The Wananga grading system reflects it's view that there is no failure, only a 'yet to achieve' status. Everyone is treated as a PERSON who is EQUAL, not just a number.
More often than not, you'll find that you've got the support of whanau (family) inside this organisation anyway.
