Flexible study options

More than 70% of our programmes can be studied part-time. We also offer online, distance and flexible delivery. Learn more about the different flexible study options and what they mean for you.

Learn on your terms

Sometimes study needs to fit around your life rather than the other way around - right? We get it, which is why we're constantly working to make it as easy as possible to study with us. Here are some of the ways you can learn on your terms.

Part time study

Most of our programmes (about 70%) can be studied part-time. Programmes are made up of a number of different courses (sometimes called papers). If you are studying part-time, you might choose to enrol in just a few courses each semester. As a part-time student, you'll be in the same classes with full-time students but it will take you longer to complete your qualification. Some programmes have conditions about the maximum amount of time you can take to complete your studies, so if you're thinking of studying part-time, its a good idea to have a chat with a programme manager or administrator first. Timetables showing class times for courses are normally available a few weeks before the start of each semester. To see if the programme you are interested in is available part-time, look for this icon.

Flexible study

Flexible programmes offer a blend of in-class, in-workplace and/or online study. For example, most of our business administration programmes can be studied full-time, part-time, in the workplace or at home. Other flexible programme enable you to study the theory as a distance learning package but also complete some practical work components at your workplace.

Online study

Some courses or programmes at NMIT are offered fully online. This means you can study them from anywhere in New Zealand, anytime it suits you, provided you have a computer with an internet connection and basic computer skills. Many of our business courses at diploma and degree level are available fully online. There are also online courses available in creative industries and aviation engineering.
