Is Summer Start for me?

Summer Start is a six week programme giving eligible* school leavers the opportunity to gain credits towards their degree and start their University journey early.

If you’re a Year 13 student planning to study at university in Semester One 2021, you can get a head start on your studies and start experiencing life at the University of Auckland.

Summer Start begins in January 2021 and will give you the academic skills and knowledge you need to help you succeed and transition into University life.

Our Summer Start programme offers:

  • Enrolment in one credit course to help give students a head start in their university studies.
  • Access to Summer Start leaders who will provide academic, social and pastoral support throughout the programme.
  • Additional tutoring and study skill sessions to enable you to kick-start your University journey.
  • Orientation to both the University and Auckland city.
  • Accommodation options for students from outside of Auckland.
  • Future leadership opportunities for students in the Summer Start programme.
  • Study, tutorial and hangout spaces.
  • Fun activities such as sports and quizzes to introduce you to University life.

*The Summer Start programme is free for New Zealand school leaver students who meet the eligibility requirements of the New Zealand government’s Fees Free tertiary education initiative. There is a tuition cost and other charges for the credit-course within Summer Start but the charges will be paid through Fees Free if students are eligible.
