Bethlehem Tertiary Institute
Bethlehem Tertiary Institute is a Category One private tertiary provider (as measured by the New Zealand Qualification Authority) with a beautiful campus in Tauranga. Established in 1993, BTI has a strong reputation for graduating students who are highly sought after by schools, ECE centres, agencies and people helping fields.
Driven by our Christian faith, we foster a strong sense of community that is enjoyed by students and staff alike. We teach in small groups, onsite or by distance, and students have open access to staff who are engaged in research, 7 of whom are PhDs. Our motto is “GREAT HEARTS AND MINDS”. This motto sums up our dedication to both personal and professional growth; our belief is that we can inspire and encourage people to grow holistically as well as academically. Stretching our students towards excellence in their chosen field is a high priority and developing the "whole person" as an integral part of that process is really important to us.
This approach makes our graduates stand out from the crowd, be distinctive, and, most importantly, make a difference in the lives of others. All our qualifications are New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) approved and accredited.
