Tertiary Programmes and degree options

Our Tertiary Programmes are designed to cover a wide range of vocational skills and education required for diverse pathways in the Sport, Fitness and Recreation industry.

Our Diploma level 5 course, the NZIS Diploma in Sport Management and Exercise Prescription, ensures that students have explored all aspects of the industry in preparation for higher-level Diploma and Degree studies. After having graduated successfully from this NCEA Level 5 programme, students can choose to go on to higher learning and go either in the direction of Advanced Sport Management or Advanced Exercise Prescription. After finishing one of these Level 6 courses, students will be well equipped to start their career in the Sport, Fitness and Recreation industry.

Students aged 16-19 years can take advantage of our fees free pathways to enrol in vocational education and training, like one of our personal trainer courses.

We also have two degree options to allow students to complete a degree through the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand or the University of Victoria in Melbourne.
