What is Academy?
Academy is an online learning platform that teaches all the University lectures to an A+ level and equips students with advanced studying techniques and strategies to enter medical school safely.
Imagine studying most of the year before University begins.
Imagine doubling your study efficiency.
Imagine having answers to every academic question at your fingertips.
Innovation through experience
Our courses are more than just video tutorials. We’ve managed to leverage our industry-leading expertise into an accessible format.
Learn the material while you get smarter
We’ve integrated the highly effective components of our learning specialist programs into each course. As you progress through the content, you not only learn the material, but you actually learn to study smarter and much more efficiently.
How we construct each course
Some things just aren’t taught clearly. Professors can have expert bias. Content can be overwhelming and messy. Ideas are often hard to connect.
We go through the courses for major university pre-medical programs and connect all the detailed material to their fundamental underlying concepts.
We know that not all explanations are equal.
Every concept is examined to identify the easiest way for high-school and first-year university students to understand it at an A+ level.
Teaching effectively is about creating logic and meaning.
Topics are re-organised and re-taught by our hand-picked A+ tutors with supplementary material to facilitate each step.
A good tutor works themselves into redundancy.
Key, bite-sized studying tips are integrated throughout each course to gradually increase the efficiency of your studying. These tips alone have a massive impact!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Each subject comprehensively covers all main topics and concepts in the respective University of Auckland curricula. Each topic is broken down into digestible chunks of 5 to 20 minutes each. This is to allow razor focused revision.
Currently, we cover approximately 90% of content of University of Auckland semester 1 core papers to an A+ level of depth – more than any other resource. By end of January we will cover 95-99% of all core papers for the year, including MEDSCI 142 and the non-core PHYSICS 160.
Absolutely not. In fact, this is better in almost every way. We actually replaced our physical early preparation course for Academy because it was so clearly superior.
Here’s what Academy allows that normal tutoring or workshop courses don’t:
- Unlimited replay and revision.
- Progression at any place, entirely at your own pace. You’re not locked into a course schedule.
- No minimum or maximum amount per “session” – you do as little or as much as you want.
- Get ahead as far as you want for no extra price.
- Continuous access to resources.
- Quality checking by multiple people, with constant improvement over time.
- Evidence-based study improvement techniques.
Here’s what you get with Academy that you also get with normal tutoring:
- Question and answer time with an individual tutor – you have access to this for free and unlimited with our Classroom.co.nz
- Accountability – we have an accountability mentor program built into the Academy to make sure you are on track. In fact, the milestones we have set up are far more rigorous than what a normal tutor can provide due to our enormous experience.
What we find is that high school students do not spend enough time learning how to study effectively before university. This can have serious consequences in both experience and outcome.
We recommend all high school students to start our Study Smarter courses as early as possible. Most of our early preparation students will begin studying material a month or two before the University semester begins, however they start to refine their studying techniques up to a year or two prior.
Besides, we will extend your Plus membership for as long as you need it (for free)!
Believe it or not, the discounts for Academy Plus members are so huge that you may actually end up spending less overall. Academy Plus members receive the following discounts:
- 40 to 50% off our Class Pass (including the discount from Class Pass itself, this gives access to our classes for approximately 85% off)
- 20% off our MMI course
- 30% off Quicksense practice test bank
- 10% off all private tutorials
- 30% off your first Academic Coaching Evaluation
We also provide additional discounts and extra events for Academy Plus members throughout the year, including academic coaching, mentoring, and special consultations.
Why do we discount it so heavily? Well it’s really simple. JTT is a social enterprise. Our organisation exists to support students. We charge based on the value of services we deliver and it allows us to reach more students.
By becoming an Academy Plus member, you are directly supporting our cause and we want to show our appreciation by making it as easy, affordable, and accessible for you to access all the support you might need. We’re out to deliver value, not exploit our students for every dollar. That’s why we happily take a hit on our profit margins if it means more students helped in meaningful ways.

Unlike other companies, we are a social enterprise. Our primary goal is not to make a profit, but to assist students. We charge because we need the revenue to pay our staff, fund our support services and fuel our social impact programs.
We want the best support to be available for as many students as possible, and we strongly disagree with the extortion of vulnerable students and parents that plagued the market.
All of our resources are custom created by us, based on extensive experience tutoring individual students. We know how first-year and high-school students think, and we know how to explain them in easier, more concise ways.
We also integrate a large amount of study efficiency tips as part of the course. This means your ability to study effectively should increase as you progress through the course.
Furthermore, every student is given access to our Orientation and Optimisation course, which addresses all the major mistakes students typically make and how to overcome them.
Exactly as it sounds, we hold a workshop before the beginning of the year to make sure all of our Academy Plus students are hitting the year with the right processes and the right mindset.
After assisting students for so many years, we can tell very quickly when a student has red flags early on. This workshop leverages that experience to immediately address possible risks and weaknesses before the year begins.
Our courses cover approximately 99% of University of Auckland material and 90% of Otago material (for the respective papers).
For the sheer amount of resources you receive and the in-depth Study Smarter, time management, and stress management courses, it is easily an investment that pays for itself.
We will also be adding more courses to eventually cover 99% of Otago content also.
