Social activities at the ELA


ELA students are encouraged to join regular social activities and special events. Activities are a great chance to practice English and meet other students outside class hours.

Events for online students can include Meet2Chat where students can have conversations with English speakers from the University of Auckland and practice their language skills, virtual New Zealand homestay visits which give students the opportunity to talk to a New Zealand family and learn more about New Zealand, virtual 360-degree University of Auckland faculty tours, and more. Online students have also been able to join events at the ELA virtually such as Halloween and Christmas parties. 

Activities and events for on-campus students vary by time of year but can include BBQs, football games, zoo trips, and beach trips, as well as festive parties at the ELA such as Halloween and Christmas parties. 

Join a Student Club

Joining a club during your studies at the ELA is a great opportunity for you to practise your English with other native speakers. The ELA has clubs related to English for students to join at the Study Centre. Outside of English, ELA students can also join any of the 200 clubs at the University of Auckland ranging from sports, arts, culture and many more.
