Step in to WITT

18 July 2022

If you're new to study or it's been a while since you've studied, Step into WITT is a really great workshop that will help you get ready to start your study journey with us. 

Monday 18 July
10:00am - 1:00pm
Meet at our New Plymouth campus reception on Bell Street. 

In this workshop, we cover the basics such as:

  • Show you around the campus so you know where to go
  • Help you understand what happens and what to bring on your first day
  • Give you tools to help manage your time, wellbeing and study commitments 
  • And most importantly, share some kai (food) and get to know other ākonga (students) along with the Student Success team (they'll be sharing what they do and how they can help)

If you cannot attend but would like to know everything you need to know before starting your programme, you can either contact Bridget Knuckey at b.knuckey@witt.ac.nz or download the Welcome Pack.
