Foundation Studies

Foundation Studies


Both of our Foundation Studies programmes prepare you for further study or employment.

Our programmes run over one semester and will help you take the next step, whether that’s higher-level qualifications, degree-level study or entry into the workforce.

Foundation Studies will support you to map out what work you really want to do and set targets to help you get there. The Foundation Studies programmes will also help you achieve credits towards NCEA. These programmes are suitable for both school-leavers and adult students preparing for a change in career.

Study Options

Foundation Studies

For students who want to study at WITT, but do not meet the academic entry requirements, help, and often a second chance, is at hand. Entry level programmes run over 17 weeks and will prepare you for the next step. You will have the chance to map out what work you really want to do and to set targets to help you get there. The programmes will help you gain credits towards NCEA, and will also qualify you to progress to higher level study.

For many students the opportunity to learn what they missed out on in school, this time in a different environment, is the first key to success.
