As told by the institution

Overview

The New Zealand Institute of Sport (NZIS) was established in 1996 to provide tertiary level education for those interested in a career in the Sport, Fitness and Recreation industry. Courses have been developed to reflect the rapidly expanding and changing needs of this growing industry. NZIS strives to provide an environment where students are challenged to meet industry requirements and learn the skills that employers are looking for through its high quality academic programmes.

NZIS is a Category 1 provider based on highly confident educational performance and organisational self-assessment, as determined by NZQA. NZIS has been active in developing niche courses that complement the sport qualifications on offer. These include foundation sport courses, Personal Training and Pre Police certificates. These act as a pathway to higher level qualifications. Students are also supported with the tools to enhance their own sporting performance.

Student life

In addition to enjoying the options of a New Zealand home stay, international students can also participate in the full programme of activities for their chosen programme, including sporting competitions, camps and work experience.

Scholarships

NZIS has part and full tuition fees scholarships available each academic year. Consideration will be given to applicants who have demonstrated a strong commitment to sports. This may be shown through all or some of the following areas:

  • Sport performance reflected in representative honours
  • Academic achievements
  • Involvement in school, club, community or sport activities such as coaching or sports administration
  • Desire to have a career in the police or services (NZIS Pre-Police course only)
  • Hardship cases where students would benefit from financial support towards study costs.
