Academic
Course recommendations
Don't let yourself be tricked with the unitec courses description, they are for my experience a lot more easier than they say they are. I did industrial design and took some web design courses, they would ask me to have a "proper" training with the software and said the course was challenging, and it turned up to be just basic stuff so be careful and don't be afraid to take "difficult" courses (level 7) the same applies with the number of courses, they will take you to take 4 I did 5 and had no problem at all, and still got a lot of party going hehe

Personal comments
It was great really, and the best thing if you like to meet people because students come each semester so pretty much everyone is new and want the same, to know more people. The most friends you can make are in the village don't expect much from classes, everyone have their own lives and very few ae interested in making friends with people that will be gone shortly
