Kiwi actor and former Shortland Street star Rene Naufahu will stand trial in September accused of sex crimes against several of his acting students.

The 46-year-old faces a total of 17 charges, including indecent assault and sexual violation, over alleged offending against seven adult women he was teaching between 2010 and 2013.

He was excused from appearing at Auckland District Court on Tuesday as a trial date was set for September 4.

The trial is expected to last four weeks.
