Amazing lifestyle

BTI campus is situated in a suburb of Tauranga, in Aotearoa New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty – so-named for its sunshine, arable land and lifestyle second to none.

Tauranga is the largest city in the coastal Bay of Plenty and is home to approximately 140,000 people. Tauranga means ‘place of rest or anchorage’ in Māori and while the sparkling harbour and magnificent views make it a great place to relax and recharge, there’s also plenty to keep you busy when you’re not studying.

Tauranga is a three-hour drive from Auckland, our largest city and hub for international travel.

Whether you’re a local, planning to move here, or just coming for onsite wānanga – Tauranga has a lot to offer! It’s a great sized little city, easy to get around and there is lots to do to keep you occupied in your free time. For more about what the local area has to offer visit
