This Friday, Speaker Trevor Mallard and MPs are bringing Parliament to UC. Students are encouraged to come along for a BBQ and a chat.
The travelling non-partisan event was launched in South Auckland at the end of last year, and aims to encourage student engagement. They’re out to prove that you don’t need to live in Wellington to get involved with Parliament – there are loads of ways to have your say.
Friday’s event will be hosted by the UC Pols club, a non-partisan political group here on campus. They’ll be joined by Mr Speaker and MPs David Carter, David Seymour, Matt Doocey and Jan Logie.
If you’re keen for a chat and a bite to eat, stop by Parly to the People in the Undercroft this Friday from 1.00pm to 2.30pm.
See you there!
- When: Friday 15 March, 1.00pm–2.30pm

Why did you decide to study? How do you plan to make the most of your time at UC?
If you’re still figuring things out, looking to discover opportunities beyond your degree discipline, or simply make the most of your time at UC, maybe it’s time for a Talk.
Returning to campus for the first UC Careers Lunchtime Talk for 2019, we’re proud to welcome UC grad Michael McRae.
In the two years since leaving UC, Michael has travelled between Auckland, Tokyo and Singapore as part of his role at Heineken where he was leading a team of marketers and consultants to develop Heineken’s strategy for craft beer throughout Asia.
While studying Law and Finance at UC, Michael was involved in all areas of campus life, and credits his key learnings from three specific areas: two years on the UCSA, study tours to Thailand and China, and national business case competitions run through the Centre for Entrepreneurship.
In his career talk, Michael will cover making the most of your time at UC, not being afraid to follow a career from outside your area of study and how our unique clubs and societies culture can set you up well with companies like Heineken.
