Māori Centre Academic Workshops for HSFY
This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Alex to read a recent response and update the status.
Dear University of Otago,
I would like to request under the Official Information Act information regarding the academic workshops for HSFY students run by the Māori Centre as well as general questions about special entry into professional courses through HFSY.
1. Is the Māori Centre funded by the university? If so how much funding are they allocated each year?
2. Are these workshops run by university employed staff?
3. Are the resources available to students invited to attend these workshops equally available to other non-special pathway HSFY students? If not, why not?
4. Would you be able to provide a detailed list of all the resources shared in the Māori center to HSFY students?
5. Are there any course coordinators, 'exam writers and/or lecturers of current (both semester 1 and 2) subjects involved in the workshops run by the Māori center?
6. What were the 2019 and 2020 UCAT thresholds for Māori and Pasifika students for entry into medicine and dentistry. How does this compare to thresholds for non-special pathway general entry students aiming for medicine and dentistry?
7. What were the 2019 and 2020 GPA requirements for Māori and Pasifika students for entry into medicine and dentistry. How does this compare to GPA requirements for non-special pathway general entry students aiming for medicine and dentistry?
8. How many HSFY Māori and Pasifika students were successful in entering medicine and dentistry in 2019 and 2020? How does this compare to the number of non-special pathway general entry students who were admitted from HSFY?
9. How many HSFY Māori and Pasifika students passed the minimum grade to enter medicine and dentistry in 2019 and 2020? What was this minimum grade?
* Would you be able to provide the exact figures for both medicine and dentistry separately as well as for Māori and Pasifika students?
