CEO’s Welcome

Kia ora tātou katoa and welcome to Eastern Institute of Technology

2015 05 Chris CollinsChoosing a place to study is an important and sometimes difficult decision because of the personal investment in time and money that is required in completing a qualification.  EIT has been consistently rated by the New Zealand Ministry of Education as an outstanding tertiary education provider, describing it as an exemplar within New Zealand.  So whether you are a school leaver, international student, someone looking to upskill or to extend your formal qualifications, you can have full confidence that in choosing to study at EIT you have chosen one of the outstanding tertiary education provider in New Zealand.

EIT has a wide range of certificates, diplomas and one of the most extensive ranges of degree level programmes of any institute of technology.  It also probably has the most attractive campuses and supportive learning environment, which partly explains why it has been one of the fastest growing tertiary institutes in the country.

Situated in Hawke’s Bay and Tairāwhiti, which are regarded as a premier tourist and lifestyle destinations, EIT is a great location to study.  So if you are coming from outside of the region, studying at EIT gives you great access to two well serviced regions some of the best climates in the country, beaches, the outdoors, and all in the heart of two of the premier wine growing regions in New Zealand. We also have an international graduate campus in the heart of Auckland.

Importantly, EIT qualifications are based on strong partnerships with industry and employers, and position graduates for strong employment outcomes. If you want a qualification that is highly regarded, relevant to the changing world we live in, and which will be sought after by employers, then we’d be delighted to discuss with you the many options we offer at EIT.

Hei kōnei rā and best wishes
