We have solid partnerships with other tertiary education providers to further enable us to meet the needs of our region and provide the best quality learning for our ākonga.
NorthTec and Te Pūkenga's commitment to our students extends beyond the campus boundaries. We have solid partnerships with iwi, other institutions, industry organisations, and advisors to further enable us to meet support our ākonga.
NorthTec | Te Pūkenga has educational partnerships in Business, Science (Conservation and Environmental Management) and Sports Science with AUT University. These arrangements allow students to study at NorthTec | Te Pūkenga and to transfer to AUT qualifications with credit. The students who successfully complete the Diploma in Sport and Recreation with us gain automatic right of entry into the Bachelor of Sport and Recreation (AUT) programme through a partnership we has with AUT, New Zealand’s newest university. NorthTec | Te Pūkenga also delivers the third year of the degree in Whangārei thus allowing students to complete the degree without leaving the Northland.
In October 2003 NorthTec and Massey University agreed to cooperate in a venture that would improve study and research opportunities in the region.
NorthTec | Te Pūkenga has an educational partnership with Massey University in science, Conservation and Environmental Management, Business and Computing. The agreement also provides a mechanism for much-needed research to assist the further development of the Northland region, including Māori development. There is a growing range of research needs within Northland and this agreement will enhance the capacity to meet those needs.
The agreement also facilitates cooperation in staff development. www.massey.ac.nz
