New Zealand Institute of Science & Technology
Our Institute was established in 2002 and has New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) approval as a Private Training Establishment (PTE). We are centrally located in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest and most diverse city. Imagine an urban environment where everyone lives within half an hour of beautiful beaches. We started the institute with less than 30 students and now, thanks to our great reputation and student referrals, we have grown to more than 200 students for our English programmes. All our teachers are native speakers of English, with a Master's or Bachelor's degree and other relevant teaching gualifications. Most of them have many years of experience teaching at various schools in New Zealand and Asian countries. In addition, we have 5 members on the Student Service Team, speaking Chinese, Korean, Thai, Spanish and Japanese.
NZIST has agreed to observe and be bound by the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016. The Code of Practice has set high standards for the care and protection of all international students with the aim to ensure that all international students are taken good care of and are safe while studying in New Zealand. Copies of the Code are available from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority website at http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/providers-partners/education-code-of-practice/
NZQA is responsible for monitoring the quality and standards of institutes and the programmes they provide in New Zealand. All institutes in New Zealand are regularly audited by NZQA through a process of external evaluation and review (EER). NZIST is rated by NZQA as a Category 2 provider in 2018.

I needed a 6,5 score in IELTS Academic in order to finish my application for a Phd degree and I got a 7,0!. I strongly recommend my excellent teacher who helped me to achieve this score.

All staff here are so nice! My target score was 7, however I got 8 eventually, which is really beyond my expectation. I have recommended this school to my friends since it is excellent!
