All courses have an online component which is found on our learning management system, CareyOnline.

Lecture recordings, assessment information, important news and updates, forms and more are housed here. CareyOnline is how we communicate with you.

Community Life and Student Support

Community formation is at the heart of what we do. Tuesday chapels, community lunches, prayers and sporting events are just a few of the ways we connect with each other. 

We also have a number of publications available to keep you in the know with what’s happening on campus!

Key Resources

We have a range of key resources to help and guide you whether you are brand new or continuing at Carey.

How do I get access to CareyOnline?

Your login details will be emailed to you one week prior to semester starting.  If you have any questions about access please contact us on 0800 773 776 or email [email protected].

How do I get an ID card?

You will be issued with a Carey ID which card serves both as your library card and building access card. You can pick it up at reception in your first week of classes if you are on-site. Otherwise it will be posted to you.

When and where do I get my textbooks?

Required textbooks should be purchased in advance of the semester of study.  Textbook lists are emailed to you upon enrolment and are also available on CareyOnline.  Carey does not sell books, but the library holds at least one copy of each of the required textbooks.

How do I make changes to my enrolment?

If you need to re-enrol, change courses, or withdraw from study, you can find the forms on CareyOnline.

Complaints Procedure

Carey has systems and processes in place for addressing your concerns or complaints. We aim to provide the best possible solution for resolving complaints as soon as possible, in an amicable manner which will benefit the interests of everyone involved. This Complaints Procedure and Flowchart is an easy and helpful reference guide to Carey’s complaints procedure.

“At Carey we believe that the God of mission is at work in the world by the Spirit to renew people and places in Christ. Our calling is to equip Christian leaders with the convictions, competencies, and capacity to participate in that mission, bringing gospel renewal in churches and communities across Aotearoa and around the world.”

– John Tucker, Principal
