Who are we?
At Unitec New Zealand we educate people for work, in work and through work with a comprehensive portfolio of programmes extending from certificates and diplomas through to degrees and doctorates, across a wide range of professional and vocational areas.
What sets us apart?
Our dual-sector commitment to postgraduate and degree-level study on the one hand, and to vocational education and training on the other, sets us apart from other universities and institutes of technology in New Zealand.
Our focus on real world education further differentiates us, and provides work-ready graduates with professional and vocational skills that are highly sought after in New Zealand and throughout the world.
Although we are currently an Institute of Technology in New Zealand, we are a member of the International Association of Universities and have formal relationships with many overseas institutions.
Where are we?
We have three campuses in Auckland. Our Mt Albert campus is a 55-hectare oasis of trees, lawns and gardens, just ten minutes from the city centre. Our second campus, serving the West Auckland community, is located in the hub of Waitakere City. The campus has recently been extended to include a new state-of-the art learning centre and library. The most recent addition is our North Shore campus situated opposite the beach in Takapuna. Surrounded by cafes and boutique shops, it offers students the best of city and coastal living.
Who studies here?
Over 19,500 students from more than 80 countries choose to study at Unitec's two campuses. We welcome learners from all educational backgrounds and age groups, providing opportunities for them to progress from one level of qualification to the next.
The diverse cultural and ethnic mix on campus includes school leavers, professionals studying to further their careers, international students, people training for jobs in industry and the trades, second-chance and adult students undertaking tertiary education for the first time, graduates returning to gain postgraduate qualifications, and people looking for a change of career.
