Over 45 Years of Changing Lives

Crown Institute of Studies was established in 1972 and has been helping students to get a head start in their careers and lives ever since. Crown is proudly NZQA registered and as Auckland's oldest established private tertiary institute, national and international employers recognise its qualifications as of the highest calibre. Our outstanding graduates enjoy a high employment rate, with extensive job preparation and connections with some of the country’s leading businesses. 


Where Our Students Have Worked


For over forty five years we have developed strong relationships with the business community and our career preparation programme will keep you in touch with the latest employment opportunities.  

Each year, Crown hosts an Industry Expo event, where industry employers come to Crown and speak to our graduates about their company, how to get into specific job roles, help the students with their interview skills and what the industry is looking for in a graduate. 

Plus many of them form part of our advisory board meeting in which they play pivotal roles in our programme delivery and development.
