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.
Many distance students want to update their professional knowledge or advance their career with postgraduate study. Whatever your motivation, we can provide a great learning experience and to help you attain your goals.
Your space, your time
If you would like to study our intial teacher education qualifications by distance you will need to reside in Aotearoa New Zealand. You will need to attend on-site intensives in Ōtautahi Christchurch, one of which is an on-site intensive at the beginning of the programme, as well as attend professional practice placements in schools in Aotearoa New Zealand. If you are enrolled at the Whakatū Nelson and Rotorua ITE Hapori campuses, you will complete a blended model of online and face-to face courses.
