Te Pūkenga International

‘Ko te pae tawhiti whāia kia tata, ko te pae tata whakamaua kia tīna’

‘Seek to bring distant horizons closer and sustain and maintain those that have arrived’

Welcome to Te Pūkenga – New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology

Te Pūkenga is Aotearoa New Zealand’s largest tertiary institution and one of the largest providers of tertiary education in the world.

Established in 2020, Te Pūkenga is bringing together 23 Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) and Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) across Aotearoa New Zealand. This means we have a national footprint of 163 campuses across all regions and service 240,000 ākonga (learners) through on-campus, online, offshore and work-based education and training. 

Stronger together

Te Pūkenga has the size, scale, skills and expertise to deliver world-class applied and vocational higher education and training to international ākonga (learners) both onshore and offshore. 

For Te Pūkenga, we’re about much more than bringing international ākonga (learners) to Aotearoa New Zealand to study. We’re about creating a high value future for global ākonga (learners) by providing excellent education outcomes and improving our international connectedness. It’s about sharing our unique bicultural nation with others – and giving us the opportunity to experience theirs. 

Te Pūkenga will create truly global citizens – with the future-focused knowledge, skills and cultural competence they will need to succeed anywhere in the world.
