NMIT | Te Pūkenga delivers programmes designed to empower you to discover what you’re great at in life. 

You will be welcomed into a diverse community, as we know that no two people walk the same path to reach their future goals and ambitions.

Our awesome tutors are here to celebrate who you are and support you to succeed. They want to see you reach your goals and have fun while doing it. 

No matter who you are or where you’re at now, we can help you find your path and discover your potential. 

"The foundation pathways at NMIT allow us to bring students here to build their confidence and achieve real success."
