Student support

Unitec students come from many different cultures and backgrounds and there are lots of services to help you settle in and succeed.

Study advice

If you haven’t studied for a while, or you don’t meet ‘traditional’ tertiary entry requirements, don’t worry. Lots of our qualifications are designed to pathway you towards further study and Student Central can advise you on programmes that suit your experience or previous qualifications.

Your wellbeing

From counselling services to the student health centre, we’re here to look after your physical and mental wellbeing. Worried about managing your money? Our free budget advisor can help with that. Not sure where study is taking you? Talk to the Career Centre for advice on the right pathway for you.

Cultural support

Our dedicated Maia Māori Centre and Pacific Centre offer academic and pastoral care, as well as a support network for you and your whānau. Drop in for course advice, study workshops and mentoring services, or just for a chat. There’s also the Unitec Chaplaincy and Multi-Faith Service – a place for all students to talk about the big questions in life.

Fit your studies around your life

Need to fit classes around your job, family life or childcare? No problem. Many of our programmes are offered on a part-time basis, or over evenings and weekends. And if you’re a parent, just bring your little ones to one of our early childcare centres, or to Te Puna Reo o Wairaka, our Māori language early childhood centre on the Mt Albert campus.
