Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) is high quality public tertiary education provider in the Nelson-Marlborough region on the South Island of New Zealand. It was founded in 1905, initially offering classes in cookery, woodwork, commerce and craft. Over the years new programmes have come and gone, and today NMIT delivery includes specialised areas such as aquaculture, maritime, viticulture and wine, aviation engineering, business and finance. The programmes have been developed in consultation with employers, and provide career pathways and bridge skills gaps in the region.
NMIT has two campuses located in Nelson and Blenheim.
The Nelson Campus location is in quick and easy access to the local cafés, bars and shopping. The campus has great facilities for everyone, including a learning centre, student apartments, a cafe, a sports centre and a computer lab. Student and the general public are welcome to make an appointment at Head Zone or Beauty Zone, which are on-site training salons for Hairdressing and Beauty and Body Therapy. There is also the Rata Room restaurant where you will be served by our Hospitality and Cookery students.
The Marlborough campus, located about 20 minutes walk from Blenheim city centre, delivers real-world learning at its finest. It is smaller than the campus in Nelson, however, students can benefit from the on-site vineyard, a world-class wine research centre, library and café. The Marlborough campus is famous for its Aircraft Maintenance and Engineering programmes.
Each campus offers programmes specially designed to meet the business and industry requirements of the area. NMIT courses cover a vast variety of subjects and qualification up to level 9. This institute is a great choice for those who want to get an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in business studies, computing, engineering, creative industries, tourism and customer service, nursing and health care, beauty and sport, engineering and construction, maritime and aircraft maintenance. The institute has a significant number of collaborative arrangements and partnerships with other providers such as Ara Institute of Canterbury, AUT and Cawthron Institute.
