Want to get qualified faster?

Your work experience or previous tertiary study may count towards achieving your qualification. Our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) programme is designed for those who already have the on-the-job skills and knowledge, but want to take their career to the next level with a qualification.

With RPL we can measure and match your existing skills against credits in our courses – creating a tailored path of study that will not only save you money, but also help you to complete your qualification faster.

To learn more about what our Business and Digital Technology programmes can offer you, view our available programmes by subject area, or make an appointment to speak with one of our RPL facilitators by phoning 0800 62 62 52 (or email enquiries@manukau.ac.nz).

And now with new ‘quarters’ you can focus on just two courses each quarter, with no exams, so you can optimise your study time to support your success so. Our other programmes have three start dates every year, and a shorter study programme with less down time, so you can fast track your career goals more quickly.

Some of our programmes offer daytime, evening or summer school study options to help you fit your study around your job and other commitments.

Are you local like us?

You can rely on the fact that MIT Manukau takes its role as being at the heart of Manukau seriously. You benefit from this in two main ways.

Firstly, being situated above the Manukau train station, and also having the Westfield shopping centre, bus interchange and parking on our doorstep is really convenient. There’s no need to travel into the city when everything you need is right here at your fingertips.

Even more important is that as locals we share the unique perspective that makes us a community. Individually we may come from many different cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds and histories and even geographical locations, but at MIT Manukau we share a set of insights, values and sense of place that makes our success possible.

With many of our classes being small, you are known by name, and our staff work closely with you to help you achieve success.

Are you looking for a
proven path to success?

You’ll be supported by our friendly, knowledgeable staff to ensure you succeed at MIT and in your career. Plus, your study could also be free - check out the Free Fees options available.

If you would like to speak to someone about your study options our team is here to help. You can also book a customised tour of MIT Manukau to see how we prepare our students with the practical skills and knowledge employers want.
