Use of Māori in exams

The University recognises and supports students who wish to use Te Reo Māori in assessments (including examinations).

A student intending to present work in te reo Māori will need to inform the Course Co-ordinator in advance so that they are able to meet the time frames below. The purpose of the notice of intention period is to allow the University sufficient time to make arrangements for translation and marking.

Written work

For written work the Course Co-ordinator should notify the Associate Registrar, Records, Examinations and Graduation (REG) of the need for translation no later than 15 working days before the due date of the assessment or date of the examination.

Oral work

For oral work the Course Coordinator should notify REG of the need for translation within 20 working days of the commencement of the course.

Timeframes

Due to the time it takes for translation and verification, there is likely to be some delay in the work being returned to the examiner. It could take longer for results to be released to you.
