Removing Barriers

We're making study accessible

Have you always dreamed of getting a degree or completing your masters but can’t because of family commitments or a full time job? Te Wānanga o Raukawa is the place for you.

We offer a range of flexible learning options to achieve your academic aspirations. Delivered from a number of satellite locations throughout Aotearoa, our comprehensive distance learning programmes are complemented by unique Māori ‘noho’ style residential stays.

The ‘noho’ approach frees you up from having to physically attend classes on a daily basis, so you can carry on with normal life while working towards your qualification and new career. The ethos of whanaungatanga is at the heart of every residential noho where the aim is to provide a comfortable, safe and nurturing environment that supports a distinctively Māori way of learning.

Our blended learning model means you have access to course resources and tutors online, so studying from home or work is achievable and well supported in between noho deliveries. 

Being a single parent is no barrier if you are studying at the main Ōtaki campus thanks to He Iti Nā Mōtai, our vibrant kaupapa Māori on-site early childhood care and education centre. Bring your under 5s to noho and while you are in class, they too will be in a stimulating environment surrounded by te reo, kaupapa and professionally qualified staff.
