Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology reviews as published on Google:
After months of correspondence with the polytechnic, there was nothing stating that I required a vaccine pass. I went for an interview and was rudely turned away at the front door for not declaring my vaccination status. Your website has a tiny covid19 tab. You are supposed to be a place of information. Do a better job! I will never return for any future study.
I believed Toi Ohomai to put all students Education first, but they have chosen to discriminate against unvaxxed students, for some, mid way through their course. As an Educational institution they have chosen to teach learners that discrimination is acceptable, that students health and vaccination status is not confidential, and that they themselves need educating as whether a student is vaxxed or unvaxxed, they can catch and transmit covid.
It's not the building, it's the people that make this such a great environment to learn in.
Attend open night. Staff helpful, friendly and providing practical advice. Premises was clean.
Don't go if you are immigrant
Wasn't planning on going here but ended up being really happy and successful here. Tutors are great and really care about the learning of there students. I was in animal management.
Great place to learn a new skills or up skill towards employment. Highly recommended.
Went to the pool, looks fab since repaint. Staff friendly as always, look forward to going back next week
They need a map at every gate for visitors lol. But a good place.
Both the barber shop and hair salon where amazing great experience will be back
It is a really cool place, nice and relaxed. The coffee I've heard is average (at the two cafès) but the wedges ain't bad! So far it's a great place to learn your passion and get you that career or next step you need through doing practical NOT theoretical! Love it!
Great beauty treatment
Helpful friendly staff.
Not suprised to see other bad reviews.
Marine Course tutors are rude and arrogant. Reported to Human Resources, who did not help at all and did not seem to care.
Would not recommend attending this
No need to send me the 'copy and pasted' apology to this review.
As much as the staff are really lovely and go out of their way to help students it seems impossible for them to address issues relating to lots of politics involved in the management. I've been sent around circles at the course starting point, charged my course fee and enrolled me, relocated to a different campus without informing me and failed to inform me for weeks!
They can't sort out a simple thing without confusion. Went to their health centre for a check, they got my sample to send to the lab and asked to come back following week for results, the following week when I went there I was told that samples were thrown in the bin as there is a fee for international students. Absolutely horrendous customer service!!!
They updated the WiFi and let me tell you. Don't bother. You'll have better luck with the passby busses. You can't study with it. Never been so frustrated over trying to sort my study out then when I get here and need to use the facilties to find out half of them don't work.
Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology is the largest tertiary provider in the Bay of Plenty. The Windermere Campus is located on the outskirts of Tauranga city.
I don't know why its acceptable to be selling V drinks to students on campus?
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.
So far everything has been great, will update to 5 stars if it continues like that
not a reliable and not a serious educational institution.
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.
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.
Great facility and campus layout
So quiet place and good for reading during weekdays. I visited the school library here.
You can enjoy outside here even weekends.
great friendly bunch. experienced and full of knowledge. also they have a very comfortable working environment. recommended anyone to study there.
