Graduate Profile - what makes our graduates unique

Our graduates tell us that they made friends for life at BTI, and their educators became their friends.

Not only that, we know that 80-90% of our graduates are employed as soon as they graduate. By studying at BTI, you can set yourself up for success in your chosen career.

What NZQA had to say about our graduates

In its most recent EER review (2021), the NZQA reported that: 

  • Most students succeed in their studies and progress into employment at consistently high rates. Highly effective, individualised guidance and support underpins strong learner achievement and fosters personal and professional growth and enhanced wellbeing.
  • BTI has significant capability in blended and online delivery. The compulsory block courses provide important opportunities for degree students to establish strong social and academic support networks.
  • BTI has effective academic leadership and thorough, well-documented quality assurance processes. Assessment and moderation practices have been a focus for improvement in recent years.
  • BTI is developing research capability and outputs as well as strengthening links between research and teaching.
  • BTI’s bicultural integration strategy is increasingly reflected in relationships, programme design and delivery, and organisational capability. It is contributing to valued outcomes for students and stakeholders.
