Tell us what you think – workplace learning

UC is exploring how to provide students with better access to work placement opportunities with external organisations that combine theoretical studies with real-world practical experience.

Workplace learning has lots of different names including practicum, internships, professional practice, industry competitions, community service, client problem-solving briefs and more. It can take place on campus or with an organisation. 

If your study involves the opportunity for real-world practical learning (as described above), we would like to invite you to take part in a workshop to understand your experiences.

Workshops will be held at the following times (you only need to attend one):

  • Thurs 21 Oct, 9:30am – 11:30am
  • Thurs 21 Oct, 1:30pm – 3:30pm

Participants will receive a $20 Therapy café voucher and food will also be provided at the workshop. If you’re keen to take part, click here>

Kia ora koutou,

We are saddened to hear about the situation currently unfolding in Afghanistan and wanted to check in with students who may be affected.

We understand this may be a challenging time for you and your whānau and it could have an impact on your ability to stay focused on your studies.

There are dedicated support services available at UC if you need assistance or to talk to someone over the coming days and weeks. Please feel free to make contact with Atawhai Ākonga | Student Care or any one of the support services listed below.
