Is real job experience
important to you?

We work closely with the healthcare community and we’re proud to have a long standing relationship with Counties Manukau District Health Board and other DHBs in Auckland - giving our students invaluable practical experience in real-world situations.

As a nursing student you’ll combine coursework with clinical placements to develop a sound theoretical knowledge base and practical skills.

This means you may get to apply your skills in Dedicated Education Units and exchange ideas with other members of the healthcare team. As a nursing student you can access Ko Awatea - a centre for education and innovation at Middlemore Hospital.

Flexible study your way

Full-time study isn't possible for everyone, so we've developed varying course structures to make it easier for you to get qualified. There's a flexible study option that suits your life.

You're local like us

There’s no need to travel into the city when everything you need is right here at your fingertips. You can feel at ease knowing that you can complete your entire qualification with us here in the heart of Manukau.

We’re conveniently situated above the Manukau train station, directly next door to the Auckland Transport Bus Station and have the Westfield shopping centre and parking on our doorstep.

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.
