Science is one of the primary reasons our human civilization has grown to what it is today. Science is a rational method of inquiry using tools such as mathematics to measure and glean what our senses cannot accurately understand. The scientific method forms an integral part of our society and is absolutely necessary for our continued progress.

New Zealand’s institutes train their science students to think rationally and problem solve effectively. They will learn the basics of whichever field they specialize in and understand how to effectively utilize that knowledge to further their career. Science graduates are in high demand across the global job market as research and other science disciplines are important for the continued growth of most major companies and industries offering products or mass services.

Great Nation NZ has compiled a comprehensive list of science courses offered by top institutes in New Zealand. We have divided them by the institute offering the course, and the level of the course for your convenience.
