Official Welcome – Mihi Whakatau

Please check the orientation timetables below for details of your programme orientation.
Orientation is a compulsory introduction to your programme, and to WelTec. It gives you an opportunity to get your study year sorted and off to a good start. It’s also a great way to meet other students, your tutors and support staff - all before you begin your journey with WelTec. Essential programme information, timetables, and room locations will be given out during your orientation. Depending on the programme you are doing, course materials will be given out and/or measurements for uniforms or overalls will be taken during orientation (eg. knife kits, hairdressing kits, tools, uniforms, overalls, boots etc).
Orientation is your opportunity to:
- Settle in before the start of your course/programme
- Familiarise yourself with the WelTec campus and local area
- Arrange your computer access and logon
- Get your Student ID Card
- Visit the WelTec Libraries and find out what services they offer
