Study from home

Why study with us?

Te Wānanga o Aotearoa is a uniquely Māori learning environment for everyone. We're not a university or a polytech. We're a wānanga. And that's just a little bit different.

So what does that mean for you?

No matter who you are, if you're a New Zealand Citizen or resident living in NZ, we have amazing study possibilities for you.

If you want to learn in an environment that’s been designed for your success and you don’t want to go far from home to do it, this is the place for you. For over 30 years we’ve been delivering recognised qualifications to meet the needs of school leavers, business professionals, empty-nest mums and dads, indigenous academics and kaumātua.

Certificates, diplomas, degrees and a masters degree, we do it all. And we do it with commitment, aroha, and all the support you might need along the way. Culturally rich and inclusive, we believe that what's good for Māori is good for the world, and we'd love for you to come and experience that.

Our kaiako (tutors) are passionate, experienced, and go above and beyond. Our learning spaces are well-resourced. And the amount of support we have on offer is really impressive. If you want to know the ways we can help you on your learning journey, find out about our student support services.

We’ve got sites in 80 towns and cities around the country where you can upskill, get started on a learning journey, or have a second chance at education. So come on, check us out. We'd love you to be part of our whānau.

Here's what our graduates have to say.
