Study dates

NOTE: All new students are expected to be prepared to fully participate in the orientation relevant to their first semester of study at New Zealand Tertiary College.

Blended Learning/Online - Undergraduate programs

Students undertaking the Blended Learning or Online mode of study, which includes all ECE qualifications apart from our postgraduate ECE qualifications, are able to start on any Monday during the year except when the Monday falls in the Christmas holiday break of the college. These students will be provided with program start and finish dates when their program start date has been determined. Program start dates for Blended Learning or Online students can only be determined when the student has met the conditions of their enrolment which includes Approval in Principle for their visa to study where applicable.

Blended Learning and Online students will not be provided with vacation breaks unless their study falls over the Christmas break period when NZTC cannot fully support their study. NZTC does not issue vacation periods after study has been completed.
