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.

Here are broad categories of programmes we offer:

  • Programmes for people wanting to start a testing or research laboratory career. These programmes include microbiology and chemistry for professional laboratory work.
