It’s business as usual at eCampus NZ

In February, the Minister of Education announced a bold proposal that seeks to restructure the vocational education sector and change the future of tertiary education in New Zealand.

Following the announcement, the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) have run extensive consultation meetings around the country. This has provided feedback and given the opportunity to learn more about the proposed changes to the vocational education sector.

What this means for you

During the recent consultation meetings, TEC emphasised that all learners can confidently continue enrolling and studying in 2019. 

What that means for you is it is business as usual for eCampus NZ. You can continue enrolling in and accessing our range of flexible online courses, and there will be no disruptions to your study path in 2019.

We are looking forward to another successful year of helping learners achieve their study and professional development goals.

Looking beyond 2019, while we know generally what changes may occur, there is still a lack of detail available as the proposal is still in the consultation stage. Once this is completed, we will have a better understanding of the future opportunities this proposal will bring for eCampus NZ and our learners.

Important information for new learners

eCampus NZ as a business unit of Open Polytechnic, is now part of Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology.

Therefore, the deadline for new enrolments on the eCampus NZ platform is 1 December 2022, with study needing to be started in 2022.

From 1 January 2023, eCampus NZ will no longer enrol new learners into study plans delivered on the eCampus NZ learning platform.

However, all courses/programmes will still be available for online study through Open Polytechnic - Te Pūkenga.
