The eCampus NZ Difference

The eCampus NZ Difference

When we caught up with NorthTec learner Kaylynn, she mentioned that she liked the “personal touch” when she studied online on the eCampus NZ platform.

But that’s not the only reason learners love eCampus NZ. Let’s take a look at what makes the eCampus NZ experience so special.

Gain a qualification from Ara, NMIT, Toi Ohomai, NorthTec, UCOL, EIT, or Otago Polytechnic.

No matter where you live or how busy your life is, you can study online with these institutes on the eCampus NZ platform.

When you successfully finish your qualification, you’ll cross their stage with other on-campus and online graduates from your region, gaining the same NZQA-accredited certificate or diploma you would if you chose to study on campus.

…with their support.

You’re always welcome on your enrolling institute’s campus, meaning you can use their libraries, access their support services, and experience campus life.

See success in our supportive learning environment.

Of course, some of our learners don’t live near their regional campus. In fact, in 2020, learners from 239 different cities and towns chose to learn online via eCampus NZ.

That’s why it’s so important to us to make sure you get all the support you need on the eCampus NZ platform.

Our experienced facilitators will guide you through each course, answering your questions and helping you to understand the course materials.

In addition – and this is really special – learners studying via eCampus NZ get the support of a dedicated student advisor. Your student advisor will make sure you have everything you need to succeed. They can work with you to create a study schedule that works around your professional and personal commitments, help you with time management and study skills, and be there to support you when life throws curveballs that get in the way of your learning.

This is the kind of “personal touch” Kaylynn liked so much.

“They even check in by phone, which is different from other online learning,” she said.

Move between on-campus and online learning.

You don’t have to choose between learning online and learning on campus! In fact, we did a little research, and found that 30% of learners studying with EIT and eCampus NZ were completing some courses online, and others on campus.

Make your study work around you – not the other way around!

We make it easy for you.

No one likes getting lost on campus, and no one likes getting lost when they’re learning online either.

The eCampus NZ platform is easy to use, and there’s plenty of support available if you get stuck.

The numbers don’t lie – in 2020, 94% of the learners we surveyed said it was easy to navigate around the eCampus NZ portal.

Our online courses are gold standard.

Our courses are designed to spark your curiosity, keep you engaged, and equip you with knowledge and skills that will help you in the world of work.

Take our newest qualification – the New Zealand Certificate in Business (Accounting Support Services).

In a technique from video game design, learners ‘travel’ between a virtual office, a library, and a client’s place of work, where they undertake activities with clear practical applications. Cool, right?

Don’t take it from us – learners taking this programme in 2020 achieved an 88% learner success rate, and it was awarded Gold in the 2020 International Learn X Awards.

Still not convinced? Take it from our learners – 97% of the learners we surveyed in 2020 found the information they learned to be practical, relevant, and based on real world tasks or situations.
