Course details

Bachelor of Māori Innovation
NZQF Level 7

About the course

The Bachelor of Māori Innovation (BMINN) was created for the next generation of graduates who want to evolve our nation and future thinking through both Western and indigenous worldviews.

This degree is a great opportunity for those working in the iwi sector to better recognise and help promote Māori aspirations in all developmental sectors for Aotearoa - policy, health, environment, social equity, technology, and more.

Entry requirements

The BMINN is open to those with work in the iwi sector, which can include organisations owned by Māori, or a dedicated Kaupapa Māori team or unit within an organisation or government.

Your employer will need to provide verification of your employment, and a partnership agreement with UC to make sure you have support for both your study commitments and workload.

Admission to UC with University Entrance (or equivalent) is also required to enrol.

Recommended preparation

First year courses in the BMINN are introductory and no previous knowledge is required.

Strong communication skills and a passion for te ao Māori will be useful for your studies.
