NIE Launches International Student Counselling Centre

National Institute of Education (NIE) launches the International Student Counselling Centre

A free Counselling and student mentoring assistance agency has been launched by the National Institute of Education in Auckland, a division of the National Tertiary Education Consortium.

The International Student Counselling Centre (ISCC) operates as a “live site” applied practice environment for adult students completing the NIE Diploma in Counselling & Family Therapy, and is designed to be staffed by professionally supervised student Counsellors, who work with and support the international student population in Auckland, which numbers nearly 33,000 students.

Students of this programme have often completed training in other disciplines such as health, teaching, and nursing, and so bring a diverse range of transferable skills and experience to their current Counselling & Family Therapy training.

Every appointment is rated by clients for outcome effectiveness, meaning that service provision may be maximised and specifically tailored to client needs and expectations.

International students who feel that they might benefit from some guidance, mentoring, counselling, or other assistance are able to request a free appointment by emailing
