Take advantage of some great student benefits and discounts available to you during your time at NMIT.
When you're a student every dollar counts right? So it's great when a business acknowledges your study effort and offers you a discount. To fully benefit, make sure you have your valid NMIT student ID card on you at all times. Your student ID card is all you need for the best discounts in Nelson, Motueka and Marlborough.
Access your personal timetable either via myNMIT or the Moodle dashboard. Some programmes have consistent days, hours, and locations for classes and others may require you to go from one classroom experience to another. Whichever it is for you, check your timetable regularly so you know exactly where you are meant to be and when will save you a great deal of stress and catch up.
During the first few weeks of term you'll have the opportunity to get to know us and your campus.
This is an important time to make contacts and get familiar with where and how you can access help and support during your time at Te Pūkenga NMIT.
Your class will have an orientation session in the Library Learning Centre, where you will meet support staff and find out key 'need-to-knows' so you can make the most of services on-campus and online.
Your Programme Coordinator will introduce you to the tutors and fellow students in your programme area. Some coordinators organise crazy activities to help you learn about your campus.
Exactly what happens depends a little on which campus you're at.
Two weeks of student-led fun sounds pretty good right? You bet.
During Orientation, between 12pm and 1pm, enjoy FREE food from pancakes and sundaes to hotdogs and the famous SANITI BBQs.
Go nuts with games, giveaways and music - all for FREE.
