This is New Zealand’s first NZQA-approved Digital Marketing qualification. This cutting-edge programme is designed to equip students with the skills needed to apply a real understanding of the many tools, resources and digital marketing channels and maximize their effectiveness as a skilled Digital Marketer.

NZIE has specifically designed the Diploma in Digital Marketing (Applied) programme with industry professionals to help students marketing professionals maximize their effectiveness and make the most of digital marketing and media plans and get the best out of every marketing strategy.

When students graduate, they will have all the skills needed to build a career in Digital Marketing or further develop their existing role within their company. Whether they’re new to Digital Marketing or they’re working in the industry, this programme will boost their career options in Digital Marketing.

Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Business (Level 8)

The primary aim of this programme is to enable students to further develop their management skills and the ability to effectively analyse and improve the organisational capabilities required to enable a business to change, survive and grow in an increasingly uncertain and changing global environment.

Through applied practice and advancing theoretical knowledge, students will generate solutions to business problems and opportunities in a chosen organisation or business. When graduate they will be able to use their enhanced knowledge, skills and capabilities to proceed to further studies or to obtain employment in positions of responsibility within their chosen field.

A unique feature of this programme is that there are no “majors”. This means that students will be able to select their “field of study” based on their previous qualifications and/or work experience in which to undertake their research project and internship. This can include health, engineering, hospitality, IT, finance, marketing, or business management and many more subject areas.

General English

The English courses are run by experienced and qualified teachers who are there to help students improve their everyday English. They’ll make the process fun through a balanced mix of speaking, listening, reading, writing and grammar.

NZIE small class sizes will give students plenty of one-to-one attention so they’ll be speaking and understanding English very quickly. Teaching methods are enhanced by the use of audio, video and chosen materials.

Courses are available at different levels: Beginner, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate and Advanced / IELTS levels. Upon completion, students will receive a General English Certificate from NZIE.

English Course Plus Working Holiday

First choose an English program from NZIE English Language School. From there students can choose how long they want to study for. Most Working Holiday students can study up to 3-6 months.

Once students have completed their studies, NZIE will assist them with finding Employment through its “Think Recruit” Employment Agency. Students will also be eligible to join Recruitment Seminars and C.V. Workshops. NZIE will give students all the support they need to find a job and have a great experience in New Zealand.

The New Zealand Working Holiday Visa Scheme gives young people, aged between 18 and 30, the chance to travel New Zealand and work during their stay. Depending on which country students are coming from they can stay anywhere from 12 months to 23 months.

Star Course

The STAR programme is aimed at assisting secondary school students to find a suitable pathway into work or further study. STAR is designed to give students a “taste” of an industry they might find appealing as a career option.

The STAR courses are a fun, practical way for students to get a little experience in their chosen industry and gain an NZQA unit standard. NZIE liaises closely with local schools to ensure the institute is meeting the needs of the schools and the students. NZIE has STAR courses with specific calendar dates, so schools and students can plan ahead or NZIE can design a specific course to suit the needs of the school. NZIE offers STAR in Business and Digital Marketing.
