Wu Wenbin,

"EIT will help you make your dream come true. There’s a good study environment with a comfortable lifestyle that’s great for students to focus on study. I studied English at EIT and then transferred to Tourism and Travel because it’s a fun programme which allows me to link a hobby and working opportunity together."

Live the Language 

We believe there is more to learning English than just spending time in the classroom.  To encourage students to practise speaking English and to expose them to native speakers in the community, we organise activities within the curriculum to encourage learning in everyday situations.  The activities may include trips to businesses and sites of cultural and historical interest.  Students will bring back information and experiences to share in the classroom.

Because we believe your experiences outside the classroom are also important, we encourage you to join one of the 8 day trips offered by Little Brown Kiwi.  EIT has worked with Little Brown Kiwi to design two trips which we know our students would enjoy – one in the North Island  and one in the South Island. For more general information about Little Brown Kiwi, click here.  (Note that EIT does not organise these trips and you need to contact Little Brown Kiwi yourself.  They will organise a trip for you with some of your new EIT friends.)

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System

IELTS is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.

EIT is a registered British Council IELTS Centre.
