Māori and Pasifika graduation celebrations

Māori graduates and graduands

Māori graduands are encouraged to wear their family korowai over their gown at their graduation. The hood must be worn on top of the korowai.

The University also holds a celebration for Māori Graduates and Graduands. This is an annual event to celebrate the achievements of our Māori students at the University of Canterbury. It is an opportunity for Māori graduates to be presented to their whanau, the Māori community and the University.

Further information is available at Celebration for Māori Graduates and Graduands (Māori Students website).

Pasifika graduates and graduands

The Pacific Development Team holds a celebration for Pacific students who have recently graduated from the University. For further information, please visit Pasifika Graduation Celebration.
