NorthTec is a great option after NCEA

16 January 2018

NorthTec enrolment advisors are available to help secondary school students following today’s release of National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) results.

The enrolments team can give advice on future study plans in a wide range of subjects at all levels. They are happy to talk to students or parents about the many options available to school leavers at NorthTec.

Students wanting to enrol at NorthTec need to do so by 5 February. Many will be eligible for the Government’s fess-free scheme for the first year of tertiary education, making 2018 a great year to sign up for further study.

For students who have passed their UE, NorthTec gives the option to study for degree programmes while staying close to home.

Programmes available range from fees-free study at level 2 up to diplomas and degrees, and include a range of practical, hands-on programmes with a strong focus on workforce preparation.

Whatever their subject or study level, NorthTec students are supported to complete their qualifications successfully and move into higher level study or employment.

NorthTec has campuses and learning centres throughout Northland, in Whangarei, Dargaville, Kaikohe and Kaitaia, with additional community-based locations.

Any students or parents who would like advice following NCEA results can call NorthTec on 0800 162 100. Information about all programmes is also available at www.northtec.ac.nz.
