We understand that you need to be able to fit study around your work and lifestyle, therefore we have a wide range of study options available on our Blended (Face-to-face) programmes too:
Full time study usually consists of 120 credits per year. For a full time student, study is their primary occupation.
Part time study means taking less credits over a longer period of time to achieve a qualification, so you can balance study with your current work, family or other commitments. Our student learning advisors can help you put together a study plan that will help you decide how long you want to spend studying each week, and when you can expect to finish your qualification.
Blended or Face-to-face study means you have a location (usually Nelson or Marlborough campus) where you physically attend classes with fellow students. You will have a timetable with particular times you need to attend class. You may attend class on a weekly basis, or only monthly or less - but you will be expected to physically attend some kind of class or workshop. See the individual programme details for attendance requirements.
Online (but not completely) We have a few programmes that we deliver at NMIT that are predominantly online, giving maximum flexibility to fit study around your work, family and life commitments - with some face-to-face delivery at particular times during the qualification. Find out more about which parts of the programme are delivered face-to-face on each of the individual programme pages.
