The Postgraduate Certificate in Te Reo Maori (PGCertTREO) offers speakers the opportunity to further develop their language skills and receive professional recognition of their development. The PGCertTREO is an ideal option for those without previous university study in te reo, or university study in general, who have significant experience in the language and work in the Maori sector.
The Certificate also allows speakers of te reo Maori to enter into advanced postgraduate study in the Master of Te Reo Maori.
Students for the PGCertTREO must have a relevant bachelor's degree, with a B Grade Point Average or better in 60 points of their 300-level major subject courses, and have had at least three years of experience in the Maori sector.
Students without a bachelor's degree must have extensive practical, professional, or scholarly experience of an appropriate kind.
All applicants will also be required to submit a portfolio of professional experience, and attend a selection interview.
