Student Regulations

With the establishment of Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology we have adopted new Regulations, Students Code of Conduct and academic policies (also known as our QMS). These come into effect on 1 January 2017 and can be found via the Quality Management (QMS) page.

For the remainder of 2016 the regulations, codes of conduct, policies and procedures (collectively referred to as the QMS) of the ‘regional hub’ institution at which you have enrolled in 2016 continue to apply. These will remain in place until 31 December 2016.

This means if you are a student who originally enrolled at Bay of Plenty Polytechnic or in a programme offered by Bay of Plenty Polytechnic then you will be bound by Tauranga Hub regulations, codes and policies.

Student Regulations for 2016

These regulations were developed in consultation with staff and students, and have been endorsed by Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology's Executive. They are reviewed every three years or as required.

Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students

Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students, published by the Ministry of Education. Copies of the code are available on request from this institution or from the New Zealand Ministry of Education website.
