Who are we?

At Unitec Institute of Technology 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 provides work-ready graduates with professional and vocational skills that are highly sought after in New Zealand and around the world.

We are an Institute of Technology in New Zealand and a member of the International Association of Universities. We are proud of our formal relationships with many overseas institutions.

Where are we?

We have three campuses in Auckland and a number of delivery sites across New Zealand, the Pacific and China.

Our three campuses are:

Mt Albert - a 55-hectare oasis of trees, lawns and gardens, just ten minutes from the city centre.

Waitakere - serving the West Auckland community, located in the heart of Henderson. The campus includes a state-of-the art library and learning commons.

Northern campus - brings vocational training to Albany and wider North Shore/Rodney areas.

Who studies here?

Over 23,000 students from more than 80 countries choose to study at Unitec's three 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.
