Southlanders are renowned for their ingenuity and you can expect nothing less at SIT. Not only are our qualifications cutting-edge, they will also encourage you to think outside the square. You will also benefit from our strong links with business and industry.
Many of our programmes offer multiple intakes every year. From our English Language Institute which offers intakes almost every week to our business programmes which offer between four and nine intakes a year, we make it easier to start studying.
Thanks to strong community support, SIT can keep its fees low for students. Unlike many other institutions, we don't have lots of different fees and charges: our course fee and resource fee covers the vast majority of services you'll need. You will struggle to find better value for a world class education.
Safe and friendly location
Southerners are known for being friendly and welcoming. Study at SIT and you will have countless opportunities to meet the locals. You can also choose to live with a local family – an ideal way to experience Kiwi culture first hand.
Help to find work
If you're eligible to work, our dedicated SIT employment officer will work one-on-one with you to help you find employment. From workshops to interview techniques to receiving job opportunities in your inbox every week, you will be supported to find employment. Southland has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country.
