Covid-19 Information

Onsite teaching and learning is underway fully in Semester 2.

While it is no longer a requirement, we support you if you wish to keep wearing a mask on campus. 

Please keep practicing healthy habits like washing your hands often.  

Please continue to stay home if you are at all unwell and test as soon as you can. If you are unwell or isolating with Covid-19, please let us know so that we can support you, by emailing covidresponse@bti.ac.nz

Covid-19 vaccination

At BTI, we have deliberately adopted a compassionate and flexible stance in response to Covid-19 vaccine mandates. We recognise that getting a Covid-19 vaccine is a matter of personal choice and that not everyone is able to be vaccinated, for many reasons.

We also recognise that the majority of BTI students are now vaccinated against Covid-19 and that there are those who are immuno-compromised who may feel especially vulnerable around those who are unvaccinated.

You can now enter any of our programmes regardless of vaccination status. 

Applications for 2023 are open now for most programmes.

TEC Covid-19 Hardship Fund

Note: The TEC has established a Covid-19 Hardship fund for students whose lives and study have been disrupted by Covid-19 restrictions. Hardship means any suffering, deprivation or financial challenge that is affecting a student’s ability to access and continue with their study.
