Whitireia Institute of Technology
Whitireia is a government owned and funded tertiary institute of technology, known for its high student success rates and culturally diverse student body. Established in 1986, on the shores of the Porirua harbour, Whitireia has grown to become the tertiary institution of choice for over 7,500 students (over 3,900 equivalent full-time students), who study at one of our contemporary campuses in Porirua, Wellington, Kāpiti and Auckland. Over 120 programmes of study are offered at certificate, diploma, degree, postgraduate and masters levels. All programmes have been developed in conjunction with industry to offer excellent applied qualifications, all approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.
The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) assesses the standard of education for tertiary education organisations through a regular system of external evaluation and review (EER). Through periodic EER, tertiary education organisations are held accountable to their students, employers, funders, quality assurance bodies and other interested parties. NZQA has given Whitireia a Highly Confident rating for educational performance and for capability in self-assessment. This makes Whitireia a Category 1 institution. Since 2012, Whitireia has been working with WelTec to provide the best possible choices for students in the Wellington region and beyond. Its partnership is driven by a commitment to put students first, by providing more choice, more opportunities and improved experiences.
