We are stewards of the tertiary education and careers system.

Our job is to shape the system by investing in tertiary education, creating connections, sharing information and insights, and leveraging partnerships to deliver lifelong learning and equip learners, communities and employers for success.

Each year, we invest over $3 billion in tertiary education and supporting the tertiary and careers system. We deliver quality career services and invest in education and research that equips New Zealanders to succeed in life – whatever success looks like for them.
