Covid-19: How We Can Support You

Ara Engagement Team —

Although we can't be face to face in this time, we are here to help.

Kia ora koutou,

We understand this is an unsettling time for everyone: Teachers, students and whānau. We wanted to extend a hand by letting you know how we can help. 

Ara's Youth and Community Development team can support students making decisions about subject or study choices for next year. Here are some lockdown-friendly options offered via video chat or phone:

Application Presentations: Online Zoom Webinar

Book an application presentation for your school, for any students thinking of applying to study at Ara next year. These include information about the application process, closing dates, scholarships & additional requirements for some programmes such as personal statements, portfolios, referee reports, and more. 

Individual Online Referrals: Zoom or Phone Call

In place of our on-campus referrals, your students can book a one-on-one meeting with one of our representatives. Students will be able to discuss specific courses, entry requirements and any questions they may have. 

To book a presentation, or individual referral, please contact your schools' Youth and Community Development Representative:
