“Doing this new lab tech course has been the key to turning my life around. When I came to NorthTec I was on home detention and this has helped me change my mind-set, re-set my life’s ambitions, think bigger, and get back on track. Anyone can come temporarily off the rails, and anyone can self-correct with the right help.”
“I’m a qualified teeth whitener but I’m ready for more now. Both my parents were microbiologists and I have a strong passion for science. Applied Science in labs is a much needed skill here and this course responds to that need.”
“I love the small class size and individual tutor support that is possible here compared with uni. I’m finding the maths hard because the systems have changed since I last studied but I like to challenge myself and the support is right here. I’m older than a lot of the other students and I push the younger ones because I want to inspire them to continue.”
“I will go on and do level 5 then level 6 and ultimately I’d like to work in either the Fonterra of IPL (Independent Petroleum Laboratory) labs because they are local.”
“I want to thank NorthTec for their acceptance and for getting me through this. I was totally open to them and I was really ready to change. Being open about something helps take the power off it. Anything truly is possible if you are clear enough on what you want.”
I love being amongst students who are keen to learn and tutors who are dedicated and enthusiastic about what they are...
“I’m fascinated with space and microbiology . I initially did business and administration here but science is far more my world and has unlimited potential for progress.”
“I started my science journey with foundation studies to get the basics, thinking I may go into nursing, but I realized it’s the science rather than the caring that interests me. One of the tutors then pointed me to lab work, and this applied science course gets me walk-in ready for that work.”
“I love being amongst students who are keen to learn and tutors who are dedicated and enthusiastic about what they are teaching. Our classmates come with backgrounds ranging from beauty therapy, to water treatment to the arts.”
“Running DNA gels and growing cultures are part of what fascinates me in this course. I love learning about microbes on the skin and the gut. Nature is amazing and we’re so limited in what we know about it yet. Discoveries are happening so fast that sometimes the tutors have to re-write the course content each semester.”
“I’d love to learn more about chemical properties and their correlating colours because this info relates to everything from marine biology to the stars. I’m clearly on my path now and it is a science path. I hope to go on do level 6 of this diploma when it is introduced.”
“And my dream is to aim for stars – literally. I want to be an astro-physicist.”
