The 21st century requires people who can think creatively, solve problems and understand the multiple perspectives of our fellow citizens. In this globalised world we live locally yet it is vital to understand the interconnectedness between people from different places who realise that “their” problem can just as much be “our” problem.

Our location in the South Pacific makes New Zealanders curious and fascinated about life beyond our shores. International Pacific College provides a tertiary education that dramatically expands the horizons of New Zealand students. They live and learn with fellow students as part of an international community embracing two dozen countries, their studies are interdisciplinary in nature, they learn about other cultures and languages and they are prepared for the wide world.

Many young New Zealanders want to live and work in other places. The countries of the Pacific Rim are increasingly such locations. Our graduates often want to work in international organisations at home or abroad. Japan is one such country that interests young Kiwis, many of whom studied Japanese at secondary school. IPC people can be found in many countries and in a wide range of organisations – in multinational companies, government agencies, NGOs, hospitality and tourism, business and commerce, international relations, cultural and educational institutions.

Young people who undertake our programmes gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes to participate effectively in their own or other countries. They often gain ability in another language, particularly Japanese, and deep understanding of other cultures. Our college has a family feeling. Our students develop a strong international outlook. In class, outside class and in extracurricular activities, you will learn about other cultures and make international friends and opportunities for the years ahead.

As a New Zealand tertiary student at IPC, you will be moving along the road to success! IPC will challenge you, care for you and guide you towards that goal of contributing effectively to the world of tomorrow!
