Reo Doctorate Writing Retreat

Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi, School of Indigenous Graduate Studies is hosting a Writing Retreat for reo doctoral students completing their research and thesis in te reo Māori. This will be the first specialised reo retreat of its kind!

Doctoral reo candidates will receive targeted support for their work.
