Whether you're a school leaver preparing for your first job, a professional looking to advance your career or an adult wanting to return to the workforce, a tertiary qualification from Unitec is a huge asset. It tells employers you have more than an academic education - you also have the experience you will need to succeed in the real-world. Learning through work, in work and for work. The best way to learn is through experience. By focusing your study on the workplace, you can make the connections between theory and practice, and gain a better understanding of the real-world situation than you could through classroom-based study alone. And because the real-world is changing minute by minute, our programmes aim to be forward thinking, innovative, inspiring, even surprising. That's why over 23,000 students from more than 80 countries choose to study at Unitec. A culture that celebrates diversity. The Unitec experience is one of inclusiveness, innovation and enterprise. Life on our four campuses is enormously enriched by the diversity of ethnicity, culture, personality and aspiration amongst students and staff. It's also a great environment for learning. The Mt Albert campus is one of the greenest places in Auckland (both physically and philosophically) - yet it is just 10 minutes from the central business district of New Zealand's biggest city. Not too far away, the Waitakere campus is in Henderson, at the heart of a strong, supportive West Auckland community. We have recently extended this campus to include a new state-of-the art learning centre and library, and many of its facilities can also be used by Waitakere City residents. In the beach suburb of Takapuna, our North Shore campus gives residents access to world-class vocational education, locally. Our Newmarket campus is our smallest and newest campus, situated in the vibrant Newmarket shopping area.
