We are a “whanaungatanga” – an extended family that gives each member a sense of belonging – and you will become a valuable member of that family. It takes all sorts to make a family, and that’s why we foster multicultural understanding and celebrate diversity.
You will work with a great team of teachers who love what they do, and who strive to make your study experience rich, enjoyable and successful.
As an international student, Aspire2 International has everything you need – language and study support, plus employment support during and after your study is completed.
Welcome to Aspire2 International
We can’t wait to meet you on your first day!
Choose Aspire2 International – here’s why:
Teachers who make a difference
Launching or extending a valuable career begins with a positive, engaging study experience. Whatever path you are taking, that’s just what you will get by working with our dedicated and talented teachers, and enjoying our welcoming campuses.
An up-to-date range of study
Our English language courses and our range of diplomas and certificates are based on up to date techniques and knowledge, and in line with industry standards. We work with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and industry leaders to keep our curriculum fresh and relevant.
Counselling and support
Whether you are studying a long way from home or in your home city, sometimes you might need someone to talk to. Feeling relaxed and enjoying your learning experience is a large part of your success, so we have counsellors to help you sort out any problems – in your first language.
Study for real jobs in real industries
All our programmes have a practical focus. Everything you learn will give you the skills to work in your chosen career. We work closely with industry partners to ensure that what we are teaching is what they are looking for when you graduate. Throughout your study, you will gain insights into real industries through hearing talks by our industry partners.
Time for work and play
Life at Aspire2 International isn’t all hard work – learning a new language, new concepts or new ideas can be tiring. It’s good to balance that work with plenty of fun, and that’s why we organise activities to encourage you to mingle with other students and, if you’re coming from overseas, to experience Kiwi life.
Campuses in exciting locations
Our campuses are in some of New Zealand’s most vibrant cities, just a step from shopping malls, restaurants and theatres. In Auckland, for instance, you can stroll down to the waterfront. If you’re an international student, being the middle of a bustling city will also give you many opportunities to practise your English. Not only that, you will have everything you need to learn and succeed. We work with employers in each location so you have every chance to launch or extend your career as part of your studies.
Help into employment
At Aspire2 International, we know your goal is to get a great job. That is why we have a dedicated employment service just for you – Aspire2 Work. Our team works with your chosen industry to give you the best chance at landing a job.
While you are still studying, Aspire2 Work will help you find part-time work in your industry so you can be experienced and work-ready when you graduate.
You will also be taught interview skills, and have help to develop an effective CV and cover letter. You will be supported through the whole process – coaching, setting up job interviews – anything you need to help you get the right job for you.

"Since March 2016 we have been inducting hospitality students from Aspire2 International. The students have been successful in attending our Ice Events Workplace Training. Some of the students have since been offered a contract with Ice Events for Casual Temp roles with our clients. We cater VIP events. The students we have from Aspire2 International have been absolutely wonderful. Good communication skills, good attendance and punctual. "
"Fonefix Limited has been involved with the Aspire2 Work programme for the past 2 years. We’ve found the programme to suit our needs very well, enabling us to bring suitably qualified internship candidates into our business for a 3 month period, which benefits both Fonefix and the intern. Some interns have successfully moved into full employment with us, others have moved onto other opportunities, having gained valuable practical experience in the technology industry."
