Laidlaw College provides a dynamic learning environment for over 1,100 students throughout New Zealand and around the world. Our mission is to equip students and scholars to renew their communities with a faith as intelligent as it is courageous. This takes place in our face-to-face classrooms in Auckland and Christchurch. But it also happens in living rooms, small groups, and towns – big and small – through our distance learning courses.
