    Question NZQA for Everyone?

    Does every single application/person with a degree, etc. have to have their qualifications assessed? I have a degree from a credited University, is that enough? If not, at what point do they ask for you to go through NZQA?

    Nope, not everyone has to do one. I did not because my degrees are from accredited universities. If you degree is, as you state, you do not have to do one. From what I understand, the NZQA is for folks whom earn their degrees from unaccredited institutions or some earn kind of certificates from a vocational or trade school type of setting. That is my understanding. I am not sure at what point the NZIS would ask for one but my guess would be when they do the preliminary checks on your submitted EOI. Not sure if you have gotten to that stage yet.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    I believe BodaciousBean is correct. I didn't get my degree NZQA cerified. My degree is from a acredited institution and I just sent my transcripts and diploma. We were granted PR so I think it will be ok.

    i believe that it gives you some points on the EOI if you DO get it assessed even if you don't need to .

    Really? That would be good to know if you do get extra points for having it assessed. I need all the points I can get if I can't get a job offer.

    I had no idea. I wonder where you read that from. It just seemed like a waste of money, time and hassle to do one even though my university is accredited. I wonder why it would add points?

    If you are short of points then its worth getting bonus points but ofcourse if one can go through without bonus points then should not waste time and money.
