Waiariki Institute of Technology is a tertiary education facility (or Polytechnic) in the Waiariki Rohe (Bay of Plenty). We have five schools of study, a wānanga, an academy of singing and music and a sports academy. Our mission is to increase the education and therefore, the contribution, prosperity and health of our region. Waiariki is New Zealand’s fastest growing tertiary institute. It is here that students begin their journey to success! Our main campus is in Rotorua and is set in clean, green and safe rural surroundings only ten minutes from the city centre. Regional campuses exist in Taupo, Tokoroa and Whakatane. We work with industries, training organisations and community groups to support their requirements by providing qualifications and training to fill gaps where skilled employees are needed. We provide up-to-date and relevant vocational training in key industries such as forestry, tourism, hospitality, and the trades, which are vital to our region’s growth and success. Our extensive list of qualifications range from graduate level degrees to diplomas and certificates, all of which have various study options.
