The Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of Students is here to support you

The Code (formally known as the  Education (Pastoral Care of Tertiary and International Learners) Code of Practice 2021) supports the wellbeing and safety of all students. It covers topics like physical safety and inclusion, access to advice and support services, physical and mental health support, support for transition into and out of university study, student accommodation requirements, and having opportunities for students to have their voices heard. 

Student with disabilities still face barriers at uni, such as accessibility issues on campus or ableist attitudes from other students or members of staff.  The Code helps disabled students and their whānau to hold their university accountable, to ensure that they can access the support services they need. 

If you have any concerns about your wellbeing and safety at UC, you should discuss these in with Student CareUCSA, or UC’s Grievance Coordinator
