Victoria University of Wellington says the course aims to help newly-enrolled first-year Pasifika students prepare for university life.

Assistant Vice-Chancellor Luamanuvao Winnie Laban said the three day camp, in the week before orientation, will help students transition from high-school to university life.

She said, along with the academic focus, there will be a holistic approach to student well-being and cultural needs.

The three-day camp runs from the 22 to 24 of February and has a limited intake.

Students are encouraged to register their interest.
