Workplace experience

We have strong connections to the industries our students aim to enter after graduating. In their final year our Māori media and Māori development students complete an industry placement for an organisation related to their major, and often these placements lead to full-time employment after graduation. Employers also find the work placement programme hugely beneficial. Find out more here.
