Information for new and continuing students of Carey
Welcome to the Carey Student Life Hub. Whether you are new to studying at Carey or continuing this year, this is where you’ll find all the key information to help you start your study confidently, and to ensure you get the best out of your time studying with us.
Orientation is a special day here on our campus in Auckland to welcome you to Carey and to orient you to your programme. You are welcome to bring family or friends with you on the day.
Orientation day is Thursday 25 February 2021.
All courses have an online component which is found on our learning management system, CareyOnline.
When you start study at Carey you will receive login information and helpful information for using CareyOnline via email.
The Carey timetable provides up-to-date information about the timing of course classes and Zoom sessions and block courses.
Community formation is at the heart of what we do.
Each Monday and Tuesday of lecture weeks we provide lunch for our students. On a Tuesday morning we also have formation activities/groups followed by worship together and community activities at lunch. We encourage you to join in this important time.
We also have a number of publications available to keep you in the know with what’s happening on campus!
Zoom is an online video conferencing tool we use at Carey to facilitate the course. The Zoom classes are designed for ALL students to participate in. Why do we do this? We strongly believe that deep learning occurs when we are required to engage in a range of ideas, articulate and defend our thinking to peers – in essence to have complex conversations around ideas and knowledge. We strongly recommend that you prioritise the time to join in with the Zoom classes. This will also help you get to know the rest of the class! We also understand that the Zoom session times may not always work for you as a distance student, so they are also recorded and will be made available under the Lecture Recordings tab on CareyOnline.
Again, we strongly recommend you watch these recordings in the week in which they are recorded.
The Academic Regulations and Calendar govern all regulations, statutes, and policies including admission requirements, fees, assignments, policies and guidelines.
