Our gift to you

As a one-off, introductory gift we will waive the tuition fees for cohorts of ten or more students engaged in a CareyLocal course in 2023 (normally $787 per course per student).

Terms and conditions apply.

What is study for credit?

Studying for credit is completing an NZQA-accredited course including all assessments. The course can then be credited towards an approved NZQA qualification. You will spend two hours a week at the evening session, and can expect to commit a further seven hours a week to reading and preparing for lectures and assignments. In each course you will normally be given three assessment tasks. These can be a combination of online tasks, online forum participation and/or written tasks and essays. These assessments are spread over the 17-week semester and are uploaded via our online learning portal, CareyOnline. You will be given resources to use and are also expected to access our library resources.

How to apply

Initial registraton of interest in CareyLocal should be directed to your church or organisation leader, who will liaise with Carey to establish a cohort. Carey will then provide you with clear instructions on how to formally apply through the standard Carey application portal.

Note that you will need to meet the requirements for study at this level, and provide:

  1. Evidence of any prior qualifications (as per general admission requirements).
  2. Verified copies of your identification (one of which must include a photograph). Examples include a passport, driver’s licence, birth or marriage certificate.
