Why Study Online

Do you live too far away from campus? Can’t find a start date that works for you? Need your study to work around work, family or other commitments? Prefer learning online? Are any of these things stopping you from beginning your learning journey?

eCampus NZ works with several leading education providers in Aotearoa to deliver online learning that fits around your world, giving you the freedom to do it your way.

Visiting your campus is as easy as opening your laptop. Anytime, anywhere. So how does learning on eCampus NZ work?

We work with our partners to deliver certificate and diploma qualifications differently, so you can make studying work with your lifestyle. Like those you study on campus, the courses you take on eCampus NZ will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to thrive in the world of work.

You’ll enrol online with your regional institute and then we’ll welcome you onto the eCampus NZ learning platform, which uses top-of-the-line technologies to give you the best possible online learning experience. With regular start dates throughout the year, there’s no more waiting for the next semester to begin.

As you move through your learning journey, you’ll work your way through course materials and activities, connect with your classmates, discuss what you’re learning and submit assessments – all on the eCampus NZ platform.

An experienced facilitator will support you through each course. They’ll send you messages about assignments and course content, answer your questions, and help you stay on track. You’ll also have a student advisor on your team. They’ll help you fit your learning around your life and make sure you get the support you need to achieve your goals.

On eCampus NZ, you may be learning online, but you’re not learning alone. The eCampus NZ platform has been specifically designed to be a social and supportive learning environment. There are plenty of ways for you to connect with your course facilitator, student advisor, and fellow learners through personal messages, discussion forums, and study groups.

We’re with you every step of the way, providing wraparound support services to help you reach your study goals.

At the end of your learning journey, you’ll graduate from your enrolling institute with a certificate or diploma equal in merit to those studied on campus, ready to step into your future.
