Being a Mature Student
It doesn't matter what you've been doing since you were 16. Whatever it was, it will have made you a more rounded person and it is never too late to learn!
You may feel excited or slightly anxious at the prospect of returning to tertiary education. Take comfort, as here are some ways Waiariki Instittute of Technology supports our mature students:
Health Centre: At Mokoia Campus our nurse provides a range of services that are free and confidential, including health screening, assessment and monitoring, wound and injury management, first aid, sexual health and a place to come when feeling unwell. Regular doctor’s clinics are also held at the Health Centre. At our regional campuses contact the receptionist for any health-related queries. read more>>
