Choose your Course

 
Choosing the course that you are going to study for the next 2 or 3 years can be difficult. Course content will vary between polytechnics and it is important to check that the courses you are applying for cover the topics you are most interested in.
 
Decide what it is you think you would like to study. Think about your desired career, your interests, and academic strengths and the diploma course that would help you reach your career goals.
 
Explore our courses to help you find the right course or download the NP Courses mobile app on App Store or Google Play to take a quiz. The quiz will help match your interests and values to the right course. Our Prospectus also provide useful overviews of all our courses.
