NorthTec's Bay of Islands Campus in Kerikeri
Be inspired at our Bay of Islands campus
It has a beckoning sea view and is just a short walk away from Kerikeri - a town known for its creativity, cafes, and horticulture.
Courses reflect the life here
Courses offered here reflect the local environment and industries so options range from Visual Arts to Horticulture, and from Eco Tourism to Adult Education. All of the courses are geared to career pathways in their industries and there is the option of part time study for flexibility around your existing commitments.
Top level tutors
A stand-out feature of the Bay of Islands campus is the quality of the tutors. Some are leaders in their fields nationally and internationally and they have network links that can create contacts, travel, and study options for students. Some tutors are also willing to mentor students once they leave to ensure the best start for their careers.
Our dedicated Student Advisor is available for personal support with anything from finances to course structure.
Learn by doing
The tutors and students at the Bay of Islands campus enjoy well equipped facilities to support their learning journey. These include two computer suites, ceramic and glass kilns, non-toxic print-making facilities, an on-site nursery with propagation capacity, and an expansive outdoor deck for conversation and relaxation.
The Bay of Islands itself also becomes a training ground for some of the eco-tourism, conservation, and environment courses.
Small and smart
The campus is small enough to support its students as an intimate learning family and big enough to attract top quality tutor input.
