What Makes Us Different

"Whāia te mātauranga hei orangakoutou"

"Seek after learning for the sake of your wellbeing"


Anamata provides quality education infused with an experience beyond what other academic providers can offer.

Our methodology and specialised learning experiences are measured by the success of past students in the varied range of career paths that they have achieved. 

Our stakeholders – employers, industry leaders and hapū – tell us that our qualifications represent quality, and give our students a competitive edge in their career and personal development

our unique learning experience

Who we are underpins our learning

Firstly our courses are created richly in Tūhoetanga, and secondly, they are delivered through an iwi paradigm.  This means our qualifications are unique to us. 

To this powerful foundation, we add a strong focus on applied learning – that is, practical knowledge, experience, and real connections are achieved in the industries within which we operate.  This has a direct influence on the quality, success and immediate impact our graduates have, providing them with a significant advantage. 

These “applied methods” delivered from a Maori worldview, underpin our core curriculum and create a unique learning experience.  This results in outcomes that not only benefit our students, but it allows them to extend beyond their qualification and have positive influences within whānau, hapū and iwi. 

Anamata offers multiple educational opportunities with a combination of online and onsite options in various locations for increased accessibility to as many people as possible.
