Study Area

A free year of study… sounds like a dream, right?

Thanks to the New Zealand Government, this dream has become a reality. Tertiary education will be fees-free in 2019 for those who haven’t studied before.

This means less penny-pinching and two-minute noodle meals and more moolah to spend on textbooks and doing the things you love.

Here at Tai Poutini Polytechnic, we would love for you to take this opportunity to pursue your passion. See our exciting range of qualifications today.
