Tertiary Information

Liaison Officers from all eight New Zealand universities start visiting the College from February onwards to introduce students to their campus and courses. Some polytechnics and other private providers may also visit. University Information Evenings and Open Days are another source of information. These visits are well advertised and students are encouraged to attend as many of the presentations as they can.

By mid year students will have begun to firm up decisions on their University course and around that time University Prospectuses are available. They generally come to the College, but in some cases the University forwards them directly to students.  These Prospectuses give invaluable information about degree structures, subject detail, Halls of Residence and other key information. From Term 3  the Liaison Officers from all the Universities return for Course Planning. Students should ensure they attend the Course Planning sessions at the College for their chosen University.  

Details of visit times can be found on the College Calendar.
Final enrolment for university is on-line at each university’s website.

Students intending to continue their study at any tertiary establishment (university, polytechnic or private provider) should ensure that they are aware of closing dates for their particular course.  Anyone requiring assistance should go to the specific training provider website for closing dates or contact Mrs Browne.
