If you have received a confirmation letter but haven't replied, you need to accept your place.
Doing this confirms your enrolment and unlocks lots of great benefits.
You'll need to visit Information and Enrolments at Nelson Campus or the administration office on the Marlborough Campus to have your card printed.
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.
Take a look at the Student discount directory(external link) for Te Tauihi (Top of the South).
It is common practice at NMIT to welcome manuhiri (visitors / guests), staff and students in a formal and traditional welcoming ceremony.
The intention of the mihi whakatau at NMIT is to welcome you and celebrate the beginning or continuing of your learning journey.
It is rich with symbolism and follows a special process ultimately uniting two separate groups: tangata whenua (hosts) and manuhiri (guests), together as one.
Whilst parts of a mihi whakatau may vary according to the occasion, Māori language remains a key feature.
Nelson Campus: Monday 20 February 10 am
Blenheim Campus: Thursday 23 February 11am
