International students

Welcome to BTI, home of high quality tertiary training in early childhood, primary and secondary teaching, social work, counselling, and leadership.

BTI is based in the city of Tauranga, in the sunny Bay of Plenty. BTI students are surrounded by some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s most beautiful scenery, beaches, walks, mountains and lakes right on our doorstep.

Our campus has student learning spaces, study library, and teaching spaces condensed into one area, making it easy to study and live here. BTI is also close to shops, parks and all the amenities of Tauranga city.

BTI staff are dedicated to ensuring students are supported throughout their studies, and we have a dedicated International Coordinator who will be your key contact throughout your time studying with us.

We look forward to welcoming you to BTI and to Aotearoa New Zealand!
