The Blues

Unitec is proud to be the official tertiary provider and sponsor for the Blues Super Rugby Franchise. Since 2005, Unitec’s Mt Albert campus has been the home training base for The Blues and their management team.

The partnership offers a variety of benefits for both organisations. Unitec provides targeted players within the Blues Rugby Franchise with scholarships and the opportunity to develop themselves through programmes offered at Unitec.

In return, the Blues help to enhance the learning experience of Unitec students. For example, students studying sport at Unitec have gained valuable work experience through placements within a professional sporting organisation, and have benefited from the expertise of guest lecturers from the Blues and Auckland Rugby team.
