Originally opened as the Northland Community College in 1978, with a staff of ten tutors, the college was hailed as "a significant centre for learning and an administrative centre for courses to be run in the wider community." In 1987 Northland Community College changed its name to Northland Polytechnic [Tai Tokerau Wananga] and to NorthTec [Tai Tokerau Wananga] in June 2006. On 1 April 2020, Northland Polytechnic Limited (NorthTec) became part of Te P?kenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology.

NorthTec - Auckland Campus
NorthTec's Auckland campus for international students is located in the heart of the Auckland CBD. Auckland is the largest and most vibrant city in New Zealand; it offers a truly authentic international experience. All of our business programmes have a fast-track option, which means you can finish your studies much faster than the traditional timeframe in New Zealand.

The Auckland Campus has a flexible enrolling system for international students. Class sizes are small and you will benefit from one-on-one tuition and extra learning support from our experienced International tutors. From the outset, our friendly student support staff will guide and provide you with all the information you require about studying in New Zealand and the Auckland Campus.

NorthTec Auckland Campus Accomodation

Finding the right accommodation can take time so please provide us with at least two weeks’ notice before you leave your country. We are happy to provide assistance in finding suitable accommodation and recommend the following options:


  • Living with a local homestay family is the best way to discover Whangarei, experience the Kiwi way of life and to practice English on a daily basis. 
  • According to The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 (The Code), students under the age of 18 years must stay in supervised accommodation which is either a family member living locally or a NorthTec-approved homestay.
  • NorthTec International recommends that all international students new to New Zealand or still studying English live in a homestay for the first few months regardless of age. 
  • NorthTec works with a wide range of fully vetted and checked local hosts to match students to a suitable homestay.
  • In a homestay, you’ll have your own private fully-furnished bedroom and all meals provided in a warm, supportive environment so you can focus on your studies.


  • After the first few months, long-term, independent students sometime prefer to live with local families as private boarders rather than homestays students. To keep costs down, they only pay the rent of a fully-furnished room inclusive of power/ water/ internet use and usually take care of all their own meals and transport.
  • A Private board is also a lot easier to set up than flatting as you don’t have to worry about buying your own furniture/appliances and dealing with local service providers of electricity, water, internet, etc.
  • The NorthTec International Accommodation Coordinator can help you with information on currently available providers, but ultimately you will be responsible for negotiating and making the weekly payments directly to your landlady/lord, or for managing any issues that may arise.


  • A group of students renting a house together is called ‘flatting’ in New Zealand. Flatting is a good cost-effective option for experienced, independent students. 
  • You and your flatmates will have to source your own furniture, pay the power, water, and internet bills, do your own grocery shopping, cooking, laundry and cleaning so we recommend flatting for responsible students only with good English and living skills, e.g. cooking, cleaning, budgeting.
  • The cost of flatting varies depending on your desired standard of housing, location and the number of students living together. Usually a refundable bond also needs to be paid.
  • It can take some time to find the right flat and flatmates you get on with so it’s best to book temporary accommodation for when you first arrive.
