Private Training Establishment
Number of students
Eastwest College was established in 1996 specifically for the purpose of training people for cross-cultural Christian service. The ground on which the college is built was donated by a local farmer. It has grown to its present size as the college staff are supported by sponsoring organisations to keep the fees low and to allow funds for expansion.
Eastwest is more than a place of training it is a multi-cultural community which lives, works and studies together. Students have come from many countries, including Africa, Asia, N & S America and Europe.
Eastwest operates a term-based study programme of one or two year NZQA registered qualifications.
Graduates of the college now serve in places as diverse as Russia, Japan, Mexico and India, with a diverse range of International organizations.
