The Wellington Institute of Technology – WelTec – is a tertiary institution training over 8000 students every year.

We offer a range of industry-led qualifications from trades through to degrees and postgraduate programmes.

WelTec qualifications are future focused, developed alongside industry and provide you with practical skills so you can pursue your career goals.

Our business, industry and professional partnerships are of enormous benefit to you. We work closely with employers so that we, and they, are confident that our graduates have the skills they need to succeed in the workplace.

WelTec is one of New Zealand's oldest tertiary education institutions and the second-oldest in the capital city. We have been training people like you since 1904.

Since 2012, WelTec has been working with Whitireia 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.
