Introduction to NZ Tertiary
Tertiary education in New Zealand is delivered by a variety of providers: universities, Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs), Private Training Establishments (PTEs), Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) and Wänanga. These all deliver a variety of educational options, often in flexible ways to meet the needs of adult learners. Tertiary education providers offer courses which range from transition (school to work) programmes, through to postgraduate study and research. There are no fixed divisions between the types of courses offered by each sort of provider. The focus is on their ability to offer education to the required quality standards, rather than based on their type.
• Higher, degree-level education is mainly offered at universities. Programmes are research-led and generally academic, as distinct from vocational. • Vocational degree level education is offered at ITPs, wänanga and a few larger PTEs. Such degrees tend to be specific and applied. • PTEs’ programmes are mostly in specific vocational niches at certificate and diploma level. All New Zealand’s universities offer a broad range of subjects for undergraduate, masters and Doctoral (PhD) degrees in commerce, science and the humanities. A number of universities have more than one campus, often located in different cities, and some have overseas programmes, usually in partnership with an offshore provider, as a base for delivery of courses. A range of programmes are also delivered via e-learning.
