Study Options

  • This section introduces some of the key qualifications leading to careers in engineering, digital/IT and science.
  • You can find out what each course involves, what you need to achieve at school, and what jobs it leads to. Pathway diagrams show how the different level courses fit together.
  • From each qualification profile you can go on to read the stories of people who themselves completed the course.
  • You can also use our Course Finder to research the courses on offer at polytechs and universities around New Zealand.
  • If you're a bit confused about the names and levels, check out our Tertiary Qualifications guide.
  • And if you've left school without the right NCEA credits, most universities and polytechs offer bridging courses in maths and science subjects to help you get into their courses.
