The residential College year has an initial 5-week welcome and wananga and then two 18-week semesters. There are 12 teaching weeks in each semester.
Within each semester there is a 1 week study break and a 2 week mid-semester break.
As far as possible the College seeks to synchronise semester breaks with NZ State School holidays.
Semester 2 is followed by a period of summer school courses.
Regional courses are arranged differently for each region. Click here to view.
