Most of our qualifications at Heke (Diploma) level and above include:

Iwi and Hapū Studies - Develop taonga for your whānau, hapū, iwi as you undertake research on your marae, iwi history, taonga, events and more.  This is often the most rewarding part of study as you reconnect with your own history, marae and whānau.

The marae is our principle home; maintain and respect

Te Reo Māori Studies - Learn Te Reo while gaining a qualification.  You don't need to speak te reo to begin your studies with us.

Te Reo is a taonga; halt the decline and revive

Specialisation - Choose from a range of interest areas all from a base of mātauranga Māori allowing you to walk in both worlds.

Rangatiratanga; self determination

We offer degree and masters qualifications to kick start or build on your career pathway while exploring te ao Māori and the Māori world view.

Your assignments will become manuscripts for the next generation and contribute to the mātauranga Māori continuum, the body of Māori knowledge.

Stand out from others competing in the same career space and gain more than just a qualification.
