Why Study With Us

Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology is the third largest vocational training organisation in New Zealand. 

Its Tauranga campuses are located in one of New Zealand’s top holiday destinations for New Zealanders and international travellers alike.

Tauranga is a popular study destination due to its moderate, sunny climate, lifestyle living, fast economic growth and its close proximity to New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland (25 minutes by plane or 2.5 hours by car).

The institute has a long-standing collaborative relationship with the University of Waikato. Students can benefit from this relationship by completing a two-year diploma at Toi Ohomai before they pathway onto selected University of Waikato degree programmes, completing from as little as one more year.

Gurender Singh, Indian student"I arrived in New Zealand in 2013 and was very shy. I have gained a lot of confidence during my studies. I have secured a part-time engineering job. The New Zealand Diploma in Mechanical Engineering was instrumental in securing this job.

I enjoy living in New Zealand and I have travelled to Rotorua, New Plymouth, Whatakane to name a few places.

I like Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology and I highly recommend it. You won’t be disappointed if you come to Tauranga, New Zealand."

"Tauranga is a beautiful city with friendly people. Studying at Toi Ohomai is a really good way to learn a skill and get a job. I find the course very interesting. My classes are small. I have the best tutors ever and this helps me to learn a lot more.

I love coming to class every day and have already found part-time work in a café."
