Open Polytechnic | Te Pūkenga

We offer several fully online certificates and diplomas, delivered in partnership with Open Polytechnic | Te Pūkenga. You will be enrolled on the Open Polytechnic | Te Pūkenga learning platform. These courses used to be delivered by eCampus NZ so you may still see the old logo in use as the transition is worked through.

How it works

The online courses available work with your lifestyle to give you a flexible study option. This means you have the freedom to choose when to study and how to make your tertiary education programme meet your requirements. One major benefit of studying online is the flexible nature of the course timetable. Most courses are available to start at regular intervals throughout the year.

When you enrol, you will be assigned your own personal advisor who will support you through your learning journey and a course facilitator will be on hand to track your progress and to answer any course-related questions you might have.

Benefits of studying online

  • We offer a range of courses as well as industry-recognised training, especially in business. These courses can help you take on that new promotion, project or career move.
  • Our portal has everything you need in the one place. Accessing course information, uploading assignments, and talking privately to other students is easy. Our portal also keeps you up to date with course information, news, and important details.
  • You'll be fully supported while studying online. You'll have your own personal advisor who will follow you through your studies. Our portal helps us track your progress too – we'll regularly check in and see how you’re doing, and if you need help, we’ll step in to give you the guidance you need.

Your own personal advisor

Your personal advisor will help you with everything from motivation and goals, study support and advice, to answering general course questions. We will regularly check in and see how you are going and if you need help, we will step in to give you the guidance you need to kick your study back into gear.

Your own course facilitator

Your course facilitators track your progress within each course. They will be there every step of the way offering helpful feedback on your assessments, answering your course questions and will provide you with the latest course information.

Student support

Our team works hard to provide a supportive learning environment and through our virtual campus we are available to answer queries, offer a helping hand and guidance when needed.

You have access to your own student advisor, a dedicated course facilitator, resources on the online portal, and our Smarthinking tutoring service.

In addition, you will have our student support team and services available to you, including an online library that you can access anytime.
