Kia ora. Welcome.

108Our undergraduate programmes, postgraduate programme, and short courses have one purpose: To help people prepare to start or to advance laboratory careers.  These programmes prepare people for technical roles in science laboratories. If you do not want to work in a lab, these programmes are not for you.

We have undergraduate programmes and a postgraduate programme to help people start or advance a testing or research laboratory career.  All of those programmes include training in real, working, professional laboratories.  The programmes are open to domestic and international participants.

  • Most participants take our undergraduate programmes.  For information about those, please click here.
  • People with both a relevant (e.g. science) tertiary qualification and relevant (e.g., laboratory) experience should consider our Postgraduate Diploma in Analytical Science.  For information about that, please click here.

We are currently reviewing programme offerings for school laboratory professionals (e.g. technicians, laboratory managers).  If you want to be kept updated about the plans, please complete the form by clicking here.

Scholarships are available for these programmes.
