Kia Ora and welcome to Ara

You're about to embark on an exciting journey. The programme of study you're undertaking at Ara is the first step towards improving your future and wellbeing, and that of your whānau, hapū and iwi.

Tertiary study requires hard work and dedication so it's important that you have the support of your whānau, and that they understand the challenges you're likely to face as a student.
