Auckland University Summer Start and Unibond

September 13, 2021
Registrations of interest are now open for Auckland University’s Summer Start and Unibond programmes.


Wednesday 5 January 2022 – Wednesday 16 February 2022

Summer Start is a six-week programme for eligible* school leavers that will help you make the transition to university with confidence ahead of Semester One 2022.

We know that sometimes it can feel challenging when you’re new to university. Summer Start sets you up for success in your first year by helping you get familiar with all the ins and outs of uni life, from tutorials to exams and everything in between! It’s a great opportunity to make the most of the summer and gain the skills you need to survive and thrive at university.

Over the six-week programme, you’ll complete one course from the 2022 Summer Start course list that will go towards your University of Auckland degree programme before Semester One classes start on 28 February 2022. There’s a diverse range of courses to choose from, and we’re sure we can find one that’s right for you.

UniBound Summer – Pacific programme

UniBound Summer – Pacific is a five-week academic enrichment programme to prepare Pacific school leavers for university studies. It’s designed to prepare students to achieve at the University of Auckland, and to help students transition into University life.

The five-week programme takes place from Monday 10 January – Friday 11 February 2022 (with exam on Monday 14 February 2022). Registrations are open for all Pacific students who have shown interest or who have already applied for a University of Auckland accredited programme. Students who have not yet formally applied to the University will get guidance and assistance to do so.
