Younited serves students by acting as the voice of the student body, advocating student issues, and promoting the social, cultural, recreational and educational interests of students on all Eastern Institute of Technology campuses including online students.
Our vision is to create a student environment that empowers and supports all students of the Eastern Institute of Technology to achieve their training, and educational goals.
Younited is here to support students to overcome academic or welfare challenges big or small which may arise during their tertiary journey. We also offer student budgeting support, a service providing debt management and budgeting guidance. The service assists you in looking at your financial options with the help of a trained budget advisor, who can provide a range of tools and knowledge to ensure that you have greater understanding of your financial situation and help going forward.
The Student Advocate assists students to resolve academic grievances, Study Link queries, enrolment issues, issues with EIT regulations and policies, and other concerns affecting their study at EIT. The Student Advocate aims to empower students to resolve their concerns at the earliest opportunity, but if required, supports them to work towards longer term resolution of issues through established procedures. This may include mediation, assistance with drafting appeal applications and representation before Faculty Academic Committees.
Younited provides a democratic voice for all students at EIT by representing them through working relationships with EIT and other outside organisations. Students are able to express concerns or views relating to their education through the Student Associations representatives on various boards and committees. Younited representatives also build relationships in the community to broker discounts, deals, and opportunities for students enrolled at EIT.
Social (Events, Sports and Recreation)
To help students achieve the necessary study/life balance required to succeed Younited provides recreational activities/facilities. Younited runs a variety of events throughout the student calendar to cater for the wide range of cultures, age groups, and interests in the student body. The student café areas at Taradale and Tairāwhiti provided by EIT make relaxing central areas for students to gather and unwind. The facilities include a shop that provides drinks, snacks, phone cards, book binding, phone top ups and Eftpos.
