What will you get on the day?

  • Packed lunch (There is no eating or drinking allowed in the lecture theatres, so wait until the breaks and your self-selected lunchtime)
  • Intro to UC booklet
  • Programme for the day including free Wi-Fi information
  • UC pen
  • Poncho (if it’s wet and you forget your rain jacket)


Sessions: Each session runs for 25 minutes. At the beginning of the day, the first session will start with an ‘Intro to UC’ talk from our liaison team. At the end of the day, a ‘Next Steps’ presentation will wrap up the day and ensure students/rangatahi know where to head on their path to UC.

Year 12 is an important year in preparing for university study so make the most of the day to see what your next steps will be.

We look forward to seeing you on campus. Make sure you are registered so you receive your free lunch!
