Study Environmental Management at SIT

Learn how to save our planet with a qualification in Environmental Management. Explore the current state of our environment and learn about different methods that could be implemented to prevent, improve or reverse the impact from our society.

Environmental Management is an all-encompassing field that looks to find answers to a sustainable existence through the study of renewable energy, geography, environmental science, resource management, conservation and ecology.

Our students go on numerous field trips, explore some of New Zealand’s most rare and precious native flora and fauna and work alongside conservation, industry and environmental groups throughout the region.

Develop the skills and knowledge needed to make a difference on a larger scale and reap the benefits of getting into a uniquely fulfilling career path.

At present in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, all students applying for entry to a health related /social services  programme are highly recommended to be vaccinated against COVID-19. All health sector organisations engaging health care workers have obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 to take all reasonable steps to eliminate, or otherwise control, the risk of COVID-19 transmission in the workplace.  The NZ government has mandated the vaccine for frontline health care workers. As a result the health care providers we work with are requiring their staff, including any students on placement, to be vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination. If you are unvaccinated or if you choose not to disclose whether or not you are vaccinated or to provide evidence if asked, then this will have an impact on healthcare placements that you can be allocated to as part of your undergraduate health programme and will have an impact on successful completion of the programme.

Employment agencies  accessed by students of  programmes of study other than health/social services  may also choose to only accept those students for placement  who are  vaccinated against Covid 19. On this basis SIT cannot guarantee placements for unvaccinated students and therefore cannot guarantee  programme successful completion for those students who choose not to  be vaccinated against Covid 19.
