Whitireia is a government owned and funded tertiary institute of technology, known for its high student success rates and culturally diverse student body.

Established in 1986, on the shores of the Porirua harbour, Whitireia has grown to become a tertiary institution of choice for over 8,000 students (over 4,700 equivalent full-time students), who study at one of our contemporary campuses in Porirua, Wellington, Kāpiti and Auckland. Over 120 programmes of study are offered to students, covering certificate, diploma, degree, postgraduate and masters levels. All programmes have been developed in conjunction with industry to offer excellent applied qualifications; all approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.

Since 2012, Whitireia has been working with WelTec to provide the best possible choices for students in the Wellington region and beyond. This partnership is driven by a commitment to put students first, by providing more choice, more opportunities and improved experiences.
