WSC Careers Hub Website – NEW for 2018 (Under construction)

We’ve made the decision this year to consolidate all the careers related information you could possibly need into one place. As a result, we have made a WSC careers website called Careers Hub. This should become your go-to place for all things careers. We will be continuously updating and improving Careers Hub throughout the year.

Visit Careers Hub:

It will also be available under the ‘Academic’ Heading of the new Western Springs College website in the coming week.

Term 1 University Liaison Visits

We typically have all NZ Universities visit WSC in term 1 for an initial introduction to the University, discuss various study options, and answer all your questions. These are greatly informative sessions you shouldn’t miss, even if you think you’ve already decided on which University.
