“I would definitely recommend studying with eCampus NZ. The things I have learned are shaping my thinking for the better. Not only will I be more efficient and effective in the workplace but the skills you learn can be applied to your personal life as well,”

Teri Rasousou

I would like to thank my eCampus NZ facilitator for the words of encouragement and comments that kept me going through this course. I was on the verge of giving up after submitting the 1st Assignment because of work and other matters. I changed my mind again after reading the comments from my facilitator. I do appreciate it. Once again thank you very much.

James Witanga

“The attraction to eCampus NZ was the opportunity to further my study and learning in a way that was cost-effective and flexible. As I work full-time, I used my evenings and weekends to complete 20 hours a week of study and holidays to catch up.”

Aubrey De La Cerna

I want to tell everyone, especially if you are a supervisor , team leader or someone that manages a team, that the course and topics from eCampus NZ are really helpful.

Natalie Nairn

“As a stay at home mum, I love the fact I don’t need to leave the house to learn and complete this qualification – this is one of the best things about it."

Jo Boese

“I didn’t find the study process intimidating at all, which I think sometimes it can be especially as an older woman returning to study. The fact I could study from the comfort of my own home with plenty of help from the co-ordinator, and also thanks to other younger girls on my course, made me feel really empowered.”

Nikki Davidson

“I really enjoy having the ability to study when I have the time and wherever I might be. I also like the online videos and course reading and have found the course facilitators are always available when I need them,”

Lynette Bokany

“I really enjoyed the flexibility and ability to study at my own pace and in my own time, It’s very flexible and rewarding. You get out of it what you put in. Give it a go, you have nothing to lose!”

Charlotte Kahukiwa

"I started study full time with eCampus NZ to further upskill myself so that I can influence my children to be successful and to help me find opportunities to work in an environment where I will enjoy the work that I do and not just work to pay the bills. I can work at my own pace around my busy life as a working mum and wife. I’m able to study after the children have gone to bed, or sometimes if I have time during the day on my short work days."

Bruce Law

Study through the eCampus NZ online platform allows me to have the flexibility in terms of time and location when I study.

The “classroom everywhere", means I can even study during break time at work.

Because you are away from your classmates and lecturers, on line study can sometimes be hard, luckily, I have a responsive facilitator who guides me through the study.

Haylee Wright

I have completed in classroom study previously but the on line learning option is so much better suited to me. I can learn at my own pace and complete courses in my own time with study scheduled around my lifestyle.

So if I want to complete work quickly I can or if I need to take a bit more time then that option is also available.

The facilitators are great. I often just want to check in with them to make sure I am on the right path. I'm not looking for the answer – just guidance and their feedback and assistance is great.

Stevie Schollum

I was totally blown away - I'm only 21 with 2 kids and wanting to study at home as it’s the only way possible to get achievements with a young family.

I just want to say a huge thank you to all of eCampus NZ for making studying on line so so so enjoyable. The website is easy to work out and remember, I am always getting a message to see how I'm doing and it is reassuring that I have people watching my progress. Thank you so much.
