Student workshops

*NOTE: The face to face workshop may be replaced by a series of virtual workshops. This decision is currently under review and will be advised shortly.

Each module includes a one day Saturday workshop held in Auckland. The workshops are conducted by senior academics and practitioners who provide a balance of guidance on examination and assignment preparation with actual practical work-based applications of theory included in the module content.

The weekend workshop provides:

  • an opportunity for students to discuss in detail practical case studies relating to specific areas of study
  • an opportunity to connect with fellow students from diverse organisational backgrounds
  • a chance to evaluate your progress
  • an opportunity to acquire valuable guidance from tutors around examination and assignment expectations

Travel to Auckland and accommodation costs to attend the weekend workshop are at the student's own expense.
