There are many exciting and rewarding careers in education that require well-educated and skilled practitioners. We will equip you to make a positive difference to the lives of children and adults, and their communities.
We offer flexible, specialised programmes in Teacher Education (at all levels), Educational Studies and Leadership, and Youth & Community Leadership that employ the latest innovations in teaching technologies and e-learning. Many of our courses can be undertaken on-campus, by blended learning, or distance learning options.
We offer a wide range of innovative, applied and relevant initial Teacher Education pathways. Specialise in Early Childhood, Primary, or Mātauranga Māori.
Studying for an Education major or minor will enable you to develop your skills and abilities as an individual learner, will help you to understand how people learn and also analyse the politics of contemporary education issues in society.
The Bachelor of Youth and Community Leadership (BYCL) degree will empower you to make positive and meaningful contribution to your community.
Our distance study programmes make university study possible for students who cannot access a local campus. Students can study the programmes listed below part-time or full-time while they work, care for family, or pursue other interests.
We provide high quality entrance testing, value-added assessments and surveys for New Zealand schools and run the annual Kiwi Science, Mathematics, English and Spelling competitions.
