Leaders in online learning

New Zealand Tertiary College is at the cutting-edge of online teaching and learning. A rich history of collaboration with international experts and the development of innovative technology has changed the approach to study and has opened up opportunities for students to gain professional, quality qualifications across the world.

Online study has a lot of advantages. Like any correspondence or distance learning program, you can balance your study with work and family commitments. Online study also uses the latest available technology, offering you a faster, more efficient way to learn.

NZTC’s recommendations in the practice of online learning are used by learners, teachers, organisational leaders and quality assurance bodies across the world as part of a national initiative with Ako Aotearoa – the National Centre for Tertiary Excellence.
