February 24, 2020

Niagara College and New Zealand’s Eastern Institute of Technology have embarked on a new partnership that will allow Niagara graduates to continue their viticulture studies in New Zealand. Graduates of Niagara’s Winery and Viticulture Technician diploma program will be eligible to complete EIT’s three-year Bachelor of Viticulture and Wine Science degree in one and a half years. Students will have the opportunity to experience new wine styles and viticulture practices in Hawke’s Bay, one of the oldest and largest wine regions in New Zealand. “This new pathway with EIT is another example of NC’s commitment to ensure our students are offered unique international opportunities at all stages of their NC learning journey,” said NC’s senior vice president, International, Sean Kennedy, “including after graduation.”  Niagara  (ON)
