COVID-19 UPDATE: 4 February 2022



Kia ora SAE Students, 

SAE Auckland recognises our responsibility to provide a safe working and learning environment for our SAE community. 

 We are committed to minimising the risk of COVID-19 to SAE staff, students and visitors, and ensuring that the campus is kept as safe as possible throughout the pandemic. As part of this commitment, SAE is implementing a Vaccination Policy which aligns to the Government’s public health response to COVID-19.

 As outlined in this policy, all staff, students and visitors to SAE will be required to be fully vaccinated to attend our campus unless otherwise exempted with an official Ministry of Health medical exemption.

 The Ministry of Health My Vaccine Pass must be used to evidence the vaccination status of staff, students and visitors. If staff, students or visitors hold a valid My Vaccine Pass, they are able to access the SAE Auckland campus at all traffic light settings.

 A Student Vaccination Register has been established to gather information regarding the COVID-19 vaccination status of all students studying at SAE Auckland.

 Please complete this google form in order to submit your details to the Student Vaccination Register. This form must be completed by all new and returning students, whether or not you are vaccinated.

 If you are not vaccinated, please contact me to schedule a zoom call to discuss options.

Student vaccination evidence will be stored securely on the SAE Auckland server as part of your SAE Student Enrolment record. These student records are maintained by our SAE Auckland Student Recruitment and Enrolment Officer. This information will be destroyed as soon as the current My Vaccine Pass has expired (typically 6 months), and if required, updates may be sought at that time. 

 Unless otherwise indicated, student vaccination status will be shared with staff you interact with including administration staff, teachers, student support and studio supervisors, so they are aware of which students are able to be on campus. 

 Upon submitting your vaccination status details and a copy of your My Vaccine Pass to the register, SAE Auckland students will no longer need to have their Vaccine Pass checked daily on arrival. 

Please ensure you submit your My Vaccine Pass to the SAE Auckland Student Vaccination Register by no later than Sunday 13 February.

If you have any questions, please contact Campus Director, Dr Suzette Major on .

Ngā mihi nui,


Campus Director,
