E hapai i a koe kia eke panuku, kia eke takaroa  Māori and Pasifika

Helping you achieve your aspirations

Place your story in the midst of an exciting chapter of Māori and Pasifika language revitalisation and community success.

Our vision is whānau transformation through education. Step into Te Puna Wānaka, our home of Māori and Pasifika Studies and feel the connection of whānau, the dedication of your tutors and the value of our programmes. Look around at the opportunities, from expanding your understanding of language and culture to pursuing a career.

Our Centre for Māori and Pasifika Achievement (CMPA) will guide you through your study journey, offering support and mentoring to all Māori and Pasifika students at CPIT.

Flexible study options

Gaining an understanding of Māori and Pasifika language and culture is valuable for all people living in New Zealand. We have developed short courses and part time study options alongside our foundation studies, certificates, diplomas and degrees to provide study that can fit around your schedule.
