4 Welcome to New Zealand (Aotearoa)

A beautiful piece of paradise in the South Pacific, New Zealand is a country of contrasts. From tropical forests to white sand beaches, and towering mountains to bubbling hot springs, the scenery is spectacular. Then there are New Zealand’s modern and vibrant cities bursting with world-class restaurants, galleries, theatres and museums. Keen for adventure? You can ski, sail, hike, sky dive and mountain bike your way around the country. Or simply enjoy the relaxed lifestyle and clean air that Kiwis take for granted.

Did you know that New Zealand is repeatedly voted one of the world’s most peaceful countries according to the Global Peace Index? With just over four million people, New Zealand has a really diverse population. The indigenous Māori people were the first inhabitants of Aotearoa and today New Zealanders come from all over the world, including the Pacific Islands, Asia, Africa, the Americas and Europe. New Zealand welcomes everyone, practises all forms of religion, and enjoys political debate and freedom of speech. We were the first country in the world to give women the vote, and are proud to be nuclear free!

Please note that Auckland and Unitec are not affected by the Christchurch earthquakes or the aftershocks.

5 Living in Auckland (Tamaki Makau Rau)

The Māori name for Auckland is Tamaki Makau Rau, which means ‘city of many lovers’. And it’s true – we love Auckland and we are sure you will too!

Did you know? Auckland is New Zealand’s biggest city – around one third of the population lives here, about 1.4 million people. It’s also the largest Polynesian city in the world. According to Mercer Quality of Living survey, Auckland is currently ranked as the third best city to live in the world! Auckland’s major businesses include information and computer technology, biotechnology and the creative industries. Health, construction, viticulture and food manufacturing are also important. Auckland is often called the city of sails because the harbour is full of hundreds of yachts. In fact, there are more yachts per person than any other city in the world. At 328 metres high, Auckland’s iconic Sky Tower is the tallest building in New Zealand.

What’s on? Events in Auckland Music in the Parks From January to April every year free music concerts take place in parks across the city. From international rock stars to New Zealand’s best jazz and blues musicians, and every musical genre in between.

The Lantern Festival

International Film Festival

Every February Auckland celebrates Chinese New Year in style with hundreds of beautiful lanterns, food, fortune telling and fireworks in Albert Park.

See the very best in international and independent film making from New Zealand and around the world at this annual festival in July and August.

Devonport, Waiheke Island and Kumeu Wine and Food Festivals

Diwali Festival of Lights

Taste the best of New Zealand’s food, wine and beer at these popular food festivals that happen each summer.

Each October, the Hindu festival of Diwali lights up the Auckland sky with fireworks. It’s a great opportunity to experience and celebrate Indian dance, music and food.

Round the Bays Fun Run

Silo Sessions

For a fantastic day out in March, join 40,000 participants in an 8.4km run or walk around Auckland’s beautiful waterfront and enjoy a barbeque at the end!

Fancy some free entertainment? Watch classic films on Friday nights and see live music on Saturday afternoons at Auckland’s new waterfront development, Silo Park. While you’re there, shop for crafts, fashion and food, as well as local wines and beer, at Silo market.

Auckland Arts Festival This dazzling event only happens once every two years and it’s worth the wait! During March more than 500 artists perform in over 75 different events at galleries, museums, parks and theatres across Auckland.

Pasifika Festival Held every March, this is a colourful festival of music, food and dance to celebrate the different cultures of the Pacific Islands including Fiji, Tonga and Samoa.

Waiheke Jazz Festival In April you can listen to world famous musicians and hear new talent at this weekend festival that celebrates jazz in all its forms.

NZ International Comedy Festival During April and May comedians from all over the world travel to Auckland to make you laugh. With sketch shows, improvisation and even musical comedy there is something for everyone.

Sports Events Aucklanders love their sport and there are always live games to watch. Whether you’re a rugby, netball, basketball or soccer fan, you’ll find these sports being played all over Auckland.

From your study to employment opportunities Choosing what to study

Variation to Work Visa

Part-time jobs

It’s important to think carefully about the programme you want to study because this will determine your career for a few years after you graduate. Choosing a subject you are interested in is usually a good start.

During your studies, if you are eligible to work 20 hours per week, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) will include this condition on your Student Visa. This allows you to work part-time during the academic year (February to December). You are then able to apply for a further Variation to Work Visa, which allows you to work full-time during the summer holidays (December to February). Visit www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant for more information.

There are all sorts of part-time jobs in Auckland throughout the year including hospitality, office work and retail. Some part-time jobs may continue throughout the semester, some may just be for a few days. Employers in NZ must abide by the laws when hiring staff so make sure you know what the law is: http://dol.govt.nz/er/

At Unitec you can build a study programme to suit you. This means starting your studies at the right level and then progressing to more advanced programmes as you need to. You will be taught by lecturers who are experts in their field and have excellent connections in their industry. Many Unitec programmes include a work placement, which can give you a competitive advantage when you start applying for jobs.

Our graduates find jobs Many of our graduates find employment in Auckland or other parts of New Zealand because employers are always looking for the combination of theory and practical skills that you gain at Unitec. Others choose to settle in other countries, as your qualification will be internationally recognised. The practical experience you will bring to the workplace will be invaluable, no matter where in the world you go.

Graduate Job Search Visa (GJS) Once you have completed your studies and if you are eligible, you can apply for the GJS visa.

Inland Revenue Department (IRD) You must apply to the IRD for a tax number. This is the number you give to your employer and your bank so that you are not paying the highest rate of tax on your earnings. Visit www.ird.govt.nz for more information.

Where to look for work There are many places to find both full-time and part-time work, such as: > Student Job Search www.sjs.org.nz > Unitec's Career Centre at the Mt Albert campus. The staff here will help you with employment skills, including writing your resume, interview skills and advice about where to look for a job. Visit www.career.unitec.ac.nz for more information > Check out the local newspaper www.nzherald.co.nz > Popular job hunting websites are www.seek.co.nz www.trademe.co.nz and www.search4jobs.co.nz

Your practice

Bachelor of Computing Systems students complete a semester-long work project for an organisation of their choice.

Practical knowledge goes hand-in-hand with theoretical knowledge so that's why you do both here. Industry-based learning is part of the curriculum across the Unitec programmes, which allows you to put into practice what you have learnt in the classroom. This means when you step out into the workforce or further study, you have the knowledge and experience to succeed.

Accounting and finance, and management and marketing students take part in Industry Based Learning, a work placement in an actual business organisation.

Bachelor of Construction students are encouraged to work in the construction industry in the last two years of their degree. Boatbuilding students create a variety of project boats. In 2011, one of them, Karma Police, successfully held its own against much larger boats in the Round the North Island Race. Design and visual arts students can display their work at the on-campus galleries and at the end-of-year Grad Show. This is great exposure which often leads to commercial offers for their work.

Early childhood education students work in an early childhood education centre throughout their studies. Landscape students work on designs for real sites with real clients, contributing to the development of public and private spaces. Natural science students develop their skills through placements at the Department of Conservation, MAF Biosecurity, the SPCA or the Auckland Zoo. Performing and screen arts students perform in front of a live audience at our on-campus theatre and work together to create numerous short films throughout the year. Sport students take part in work placements in a variety of sport and fitness orgnisations. They also develop their skills in the Human Performance Lab, a sports science lab also used by upcoming athletes. Veterinary nursing students work on real cases at the Unitec Veterinary Clinic and the country's first dedicated Veterinary Specialist Group Hospital, located at our Mt Albert campus.


"Unitec was one of the approved institutions in the NZ Embassy in Ha Noi. I also found Unitec on the web through youtube and applied immediately. Through my studies, I have learnt to research independently and individually. Postgraduate study here requires thought and knowledge, both through written material and life experience. It’s a great balance for me and I know that my aim of working in an NGO is going to happen." Kiet Le Quang, Viet Nam Master of International Communication

63 Application for Credit Recognition/Cross-credits from study at Unitec or other Tertiary Institutions in NZ or Overseas – Instructions for Form SAF 005

Guidelines for Credit recognition / Cross-credits Please note:

The maximum credits ever granted is half a programme, but the actual credits granted will vary according to individual assessment, as credits are based on how similar your previous courses are to Unitec’s courses. If you want to apply for cross-credits, you need to: » Obtain detailed course descriptions (in English) from the previous institution you studied at » Complete the Application for Credit Recognition/Cross-credits (online or in the International Prospectus) » Please apply for credits at least two months before the semester begins; do not leave it too late as the process can take 2-3 months, and credits approved more than two weeks after the semester begins will not affect your enrolment (ie you will not be able to withdraw from the courses or apply for a refund due to the credits). Credit applications received less than two months before the semester begins may not be assessed in time, and applications received less than one month in advance will not be assessed in time. Note: If the previous qualification is from New Zealand – Please take these items to any Student Central office on campus. (If you are in your final semester, bring your results so far, plus confirmation of the courses you are currently enrolled in. Provisional assessment can be made on this basis; your final results will be required to confirm any credits provisionally granted.) If the previous qualification is from a country other than New Zealand – Please apply through the International Office; email the credit application form and course outlines as pdf or Word documents if possible as this allows faster assessment than hard copies. STEP 1: CHECKLIST

Please complete and sign the SAF005 form and attach the following documents** 1. Verified true copy of academic record stating grades achieved and/or NZQA record of learning (do not send original documents) 2. Prescription/course outline/full course descriptor for each course you wish to transfer credit from and where applicable: 3. Verified and translated to English a true copy of degree/diploma certificate for completed qualifications 4. Details of applicable work experience (eg for Nursing where regulations allow for credit on the basis of supervised practice following registration) 5. Verified true copy of related qualifications and details of any additional relevant courses completed ** Where a verified/attested/certified copy is referred to above, you must provide a copy of each document certified by a Justice of the Peace, Solicitor or authorised Unitec agent with the following statement “I have sighted the original of this document and confirm that this is a true copy”. STEP 2: SUBMIT THIS FORM with the International Student Application Form (there is no payment required with the form) Please post, deliver or courier The completed SAF005 Cross-credit form and the other documents listed above, securely attached To: Unitec, International Office, 139 Carrington Road, Mt Albert, Auckland 1025, New Zealand or by mail to Private Bag 92025, Victoria St West, Auckland 1142, New Zealand. Further information All cross-credits granted are provisional until approved by the Programme Committee. The student will be formally advised of the Programme Committee’s decision in writing. Cross-credits are only applicable to the programme for which they are approved. They cannot be reassigned to another programme.The information on this form and on any attachments will be covered by the NZ Privacy Act 1993 and by Unitec’s Privacy of Information policy. Go to www.unitec.ac.nz and search for Privacy Policy for

further details. Unitec reserves the right to seek confirmation of the authenticity and accuracy of any documentation provided by other tertiary institutions or referees.

Definitions from Academic Statute: “Assessment of Prior Learning (APL)” is a process in which evidence of achievement of outcomes is assessed by Unitec staff. “Cross-credit” means the award of credit in recognition of successful equivalent study, at the same or a higher level, in the context of another programme and in accordance with the institution’s policy on credit recognition.
