SIGNAL ICT
     GRAD SCHOOL

     Established in 2017 to provide industry-focused
     postgraduate study options, SIGNAL ICT Graduate
     School has successfully transitioned dozens of
     graduates from any discipline, into new careers within
     New Zealand’s fast-growing technology sector.

     As NZ’s third largest industry crossing into almost
     every sector imaginable, from health and food
     production, to education and entertainment, tech is
     the future – and SIGNAL can help you be part of it.

     ‘SHIFT’ is an innovative one-year programme that combines the
     academic depth and quality of our five partner institutions. Real-world
     tech industry experience is gained through collaborative group projects
     and by completing individual internships within local organisations.
     This industry partnership ensures that graduates are well connected
     with local employers, and also have the skills, experience and
     adaptability that is in demand in NZ right now.

     For international students, ‘SHIFT’ offers an innovative and immersive
     studio-based programme taught out of the SIGNAL site in Dunedin’s
     progressive Warehouse Precinct amongst some of NZ’s most innovative
     and successful tech companies. The opportunity to meet and work with
     these companies greatly enhances graduate employment opportunities.

     Graduates have come from fields as diverse as medicine, engineering,
     international business, arts and humanities, sciences and more, and
     entered new roles where this previous knowledge and experience is
     highly valued.

     Lois Li (pictured) gained an English Literature degree in China before
     moving to NZ. She completed ‘SHIFT’ in 2019, and is now a capable
     full-stack software developer.

     “I chose to study at SIGNAL because of
      the opportunity to work on real-world
      projects, and I like the philosophy of
     ‘learning-by-doing’ and the ‘seeing-big-
      picture-first’ approach.”

COLUMBA
     COLLEGE

     Columba College is one of New Zealand’s distinguished schools with a long-
     established tradition of academic excellence and outstanding all-round achievement.

     It is a church school that provides opportunities for personal development in co-curricular programmes
     which equip students to succeed in the world beyond school. Columba College is a day and boarding school
     for girls. International students also contribute cultural diversity and an international dimension to the school.

     Senior girls work towards academic qualifications that prepare them for tertiary education and their future
     careers. Columba College fosters courtesy and consideration for others as well as independence, self-
     discipline and responsibility. The family atmosphere of the school does much to create a sense of belonging
     and to engender a strong and loyal school spirit.

     For International students Columba provides an integrated approach with wrap around support. The girls
     are well looked after in either the Boarding House or Homestay; their welfare is monitored closely, and they
     are provided with all the same resources and learning opportunities as their domestic peers.

JOHN McGLASHAN
     COLLEGE

     John McGlashan College was founded in 1918 and successfully combines its rich
     heritage with an up-to-date educational philosophy. A main characteristic of this
     school is the warmth and vibrancy of its community life, where staff and students
     are friendly and inclusive, enthusiastic and hard-working.

     The school has an excellent reputation for academic achievement, and excels in the creative arts and sport.
     Our examination results demonstrate that the school is placed among the top schools in New Zealand and
     many of our students have won scholarships to national and international universities and gone on to
     careers in various professional fields.

     We are particularly proud of our learning centre and library, gymnasium and large sports field. Since the
     school is situated on the outskirts of Dunedin it is close to open countryside with beautiful views of the
     surrounding hills and its situation on the South Island’s East Coast provides many opportunities for outdoor
     experiences.

     As well as offering the full range of New Zealand qualifications, John McGlashan College is also an
     International Baccalaureate school. It is the only school in the South Island where boys can study this rigorous
     and highly regarded qualification, which is widely recognized around the world.

KAVANAGH
     COLLEGE

     Kavanagh College has been a chosen destination for international students since the
     mid-1980s. Students choosing to study at Kavanagh are frequently independent and
     have made a decision to explore a less well-known destination for a unique experience.

     Many come because of the reputation Kavanagh has for a high quality English-based education set in a
     wonderful natural environment where we focus on students as individuals and help them to realise their
     own potential.

     Kavanagh College is a modern inner-city Catholic co-educational high school. Kavanagh students achieve
     excellent academic results. We offer both academic and practical subjects and our students can mix Science
     with the Arts or Building with Computing. We make innovative use of technology and the college has a
     BYOD (bring your own device) policy. While studying at Kavanagh, students also have the opportunity to
     participate in ski trips, hiking, camping, the annual prom and drama production, to name a few of the
     extra-curricular activities available.

     Kavanagh graduates are enrolled at Otago University, Auckland University, Massey University, University of
     Mainz – Germany, Culinary Arts Academy – Switzerland, San Jose College – California and Westin
     University of Toronto – Canada.
