University of Auckland – Tauranga Future Student Evening

Future Student Evenings are an opportunity for whānau, parents, caregivers and students to hear about what the University of Auckland has to offer. You want the best for your family member. You want them to earn a quality degree that will help equip them for the paths they choose to take.

But you also want to know that during their time at University they are happy, safe, supported, and that they are making the most of the opportunities presented to them.
The University of Auckland Future Student Evening on 2 August was designed to answer the questions you may have as a parent or guardian, so you can help them make an informed choice – a choice that will help set them up for life.

Formidable indie-pop sensation and rising global superstar BENEE announced a nationwide regional tour for August. BENEE will visit every corner of the country, hitting eight different towns and cities throughout the month.

The ‘Supalonely’ singer has had an incredible 18 months, from releasing her debut album ‘Hey U X’, to sharing the album with Kiwi crowds on a sold-out eight-date tour in late 2020 and being named on Forbes 30 under 30 Asia 2021 list. Worldwide streams in the billions have made her one of the most exciting new acts to have emerged anywhere.

Following the success of her October tour, BENEE recognised that fans outside the main centres don’t often get the opportunity to experience full-scale pop concerts in their own backyards. Throughout August, she will bring her trademark infectious energy to crowds across Aotearoa to get people up on their feet for a groove-worthy night.

BENEE will perform eight headline shows across the country, visiting New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Porirua, Invercargill, Nelson, Tauranga, Napier and Hamilton.
