With over 100 years of professional and technical training experience across the lower North Island, UCOL continues to play a leading role in the nation’s development from a fledgling country into an influential trading partner on the world stage.
Our campuses include Palmerston North, Levin, Whanganui, and Wairarapa, with delivery locations in Horowhenua, Taumarunui, and online. Our faculties offer an extensive range of programmes, under the umbrellas of Health and Science, Engineering and Applied Technology, and Humanities and Business.
He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata. It is the people who have passed through UCOL over this time, in search of new skills and career choices, who have led us to where we are today. We value whanaungatanga, long lasting relationships that stand the test of time, and a truly collaborative approach. As part of a new national network of vocational education, Te Pūkenga, we’re excited about the opportunities to broaden and intensify our engagement and contribution.
Helping create work-ready graduates is core to what we do, and our relationships with local industry provide ground for growth, innovation, and training. We offer numerous programmes that can help your staff upskill and retrain to meet new business needs. Our students are also regularly involved in internships, placements, apprenticeships and special projects – if you’d like the opportunity to work with our students, get in touch with us through our Workhub portal – www.workhub.ucol.ac.nz.
