Welcome! You are about to embark on your own unique study journey with us. It is an exciting time and our aim is to support you every step of the way – starting with a Pōwhiri or Mihi Whakatau and Orientation.


You are invited to attend a Pōwhiri or Mihi Whakatau officially welcoming you to WelTec, Whitireia and Te Kahui Auaha. This celebrates both the beginning of your relationship with us and the start of your study journey.

The Auckland campus pōwhiri is a very friendly process.  All new students are asked to arrive around 9:00 am and gather at the reception.  There will be a short briefing with new students before the ceremony begins to answer any questions or concerns.  The pōwhiri itself will begin at 9:20.am
