    Staff are rude and unhelpful. I can't believe this is actually a school for higher learning. Seems more like a job centre for retired people.

    All the glitters is not gold. Pathetic services. Compaints went unanswered. Email not answered. Employ_NZ is way better. They help my brother a lot and make him feel like a family. At toi courses got cancelled after paying fees, you ll get an email after 10 days if u ll ask for help.
    Disappointed :-(

    I had all my loan, allowance and course related costs all confirmed.. went to the polytechnic office and paid course related costs.

    Only then I find out the course had been cancelled!
    I have to wait one week to be refunded.

    I've had to cancel everything with studylink.
    I've had to return the boots I bought for the course.
    Talking to inland revenue today, about returning course related costs..
    I also have to pay an administrative fee of $60.. it feels like I'm being penalised for being myself mucked around.

    If you're signing up for a course..pay it the day you start.
    No one will contact you immediately to tell you your course has cancelled.

    Bad experience with the staff. Not enough resources to access. Save your money and study with a university.

    So quiet place and good for reading during weekdays. I visited the school library here.
    You can enjoy outside here even weekends.
