Overview

The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand or Open Polytechnic (Māori: Kuratini Tuwhera) is a Government-owned tertiary education institution operating as the specialist national provider of open and distance learning (ODL).

The Polytechnic began life as the Technical Correspondence School in 1946, providing resettlement training for returned servicemen and women following World War II. In 1963 it became the Technical Correspondence Institute offering mainly theory training in trades subjects. The institution underwent a major transformation in 1990 when it was renamed The Open Polytechnic of New Zealand, going on to become a multi-faceted provider of ODL courses and services.

Located in Lower Hutt near New Zealand’s capital city Wellington, The Open Polytechnic now provides tertiary education at a national level for 40,000 students each year. Programmes have a strong vocational emphasis and staircase from certificate to diploma, degree and graduate diploma level. Study is based on learning resources custom-designed for the distance learner, with freephone and email access to lecturer, library and other support services.

Along with supporting individual learners, the Polytechnic works with Industry Training Organisations, schools, other education institutions, and a range of public and private sector clients.

The Library and Learning Centre -Te Whare Pukapuka Wāhanga Whakapakari Ako - offers a range of learning support services and resources to help you achieve your study goals. We are committed to helping you achieve your study goals, and we have resources and people available to help you if you need it. Your lecturers are there to help you through the coursework, make sure you have understood the study material and monitor your progress.

We have a range of online learning and study services to help you access courses materials, check your results, keep your account information up to date and receive updates from us.

The student advisory group provides Open Polytechnic with a student perspective on our products and services. It also acts as a sounding board in the development of new ideas that may affect students.
