What is PG Poutama STEPPS?

PG Poutama STEPPS are online tools designed for Māori and Pacific postgraduate students before they start to study to assist with the transition journey ahead.  

The purpose of these tools is to give you information, contact people and a few starting resources to download - we hope these will help as you prepare for postgraduate study in the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences (FMHS) at the University of Auckland (UOA).
