Student Support Team

Here at Carey we are committed to the notion of ako—being a learning community together, and building a diverse and intercultural community that supports, nurtures and facilitates transformative learning. With our Baptist whakapapa, we expect to encounter Christ in the gathered community. We make space for relationship and conversation. On-site students and staff worship in chapel and eat meals together each week. Distance students have ready access to lecturers by phone, email and video connection. Carey is a supportive community no matter where you are based.

Student Association (SASS)

The Carey Student Association (SASS) is a voluntary organisation for students, run by students. SASS prioritises building relationships and supporting students through events, activities and peer support. Rebecca Hooper, SASS President, says “our heart is for cultivating a thriving sense of community.” SASS also nominates representatives to Carey’s Academic Committee and Board. SASS hosts its own Facebook group, which we encourage you to join.

Harassment and Complaints

Carey has systems and processes in place for addressing your concerns or complaints. We aim to provide the best possible solution for resolving complaints as soon as possible, in an amicable manner which will benefit the interests of everyone involved.

Transportation and Accommodation

Transportation

Carey’s campus is nearest the Ellerslie train station. Using public transport is easiest with a pre-paid AT HOP card, which you can purchase from Auckland Transport at at.govt.nz.

Accommodation

Carey does not provide accommodation, and all students are responsible for any personal expenses such as travel, medical and personal insurance, stationary, food, accommodation, and other personal need-related costs incurred during study at Carey.

If you plan to relocate to study on-site, requiring long-term accommodation, you can explore options through third parties. Short-term accommodation is available in Ellerslie, Greenlane, Sylvia Park, and other nearby suburbs.

 

“At Carey we believe that the God of mission is at work in the world by the Spirit to renew people and places in Christ. Our calling is to equip Christian leaders with the convictions, competencies, and capacity to participate in that mission, bringing gospel renewal in churches and communities across Aotearoa and around the world.”

– John Tucker, Principal
