Kia ora, welcome back to term four!


As we head towards the end of year and things start getting a bit crazy hectic, remember there is plenty of support available to help you keep on track with your assignments and exams.

  • For all things relating to accessing and referencing  research material, pop in and make an appointment with one of our expert Reference Librarians.

  • Or, if you would like some help with the writing/exam prep side of things, come and make an appointment to sit down with a Poutama Academic Advisor who will help keep you moving in the right direction!
