Open Day 2021
Our annual Wintec Open Day hosts people from around the Waikato region and beyond across our main campuses. Attendees are welcome to drop by any time to get a first-hand experience of what Wintec has to offer.
The Wintec English language programmes are ideal for migrants and refugees, who wish to improve their opportunities in both work and study in New Zealand.
Students enter the programmes at a level that best corresponds to their current capability, and can progress all the way through the New Zealand Certificates in English Language. Students have the opportunity to take the IELTS, OET and Cambridge First exams, and following completion can continue on to study at Wintec or beyond, across a large array of programmes.
Explore our programmes below and find more information about our IELTS centre, OET and Cambridge First exams, including upcoming exam dates.
