    Hello and welcome.

    I'm sure you'll get comments later from people who have already been through the process.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Did your assessor e-mail you about anything?

    In the early stages my assessor e-mailed me to ask for some details, so I had a direct line to her if I needed to know how it's progressing. As for me, Verification of Qualifications was the longest step in the process.

    BTW, does your "45 days" include weekends? Please note their timelines are based on 5 working days.

    You should e-mail NZQA to see if they can refer you to your assessor.

    But will they necessarily need to contact your university? If you sent transcripts of your degree programme, won't the check consist of comparing those with a comparable NZ qualification?

    Ring NZQA and ask for the evaluator's phone no or email address. He/she will be able to tell you why is it taking time. Some universities charge money for verification but again if that is the case, evaluator will come back to you advising to pay such fees and provide him/her receipt.

    Sometime post/fax goes to wrong person and it end up in trash.

    You should get the email and fax no of the person in university responsible for verification and send it to your evaluator.

    @JandM
    Yes they contact university for verification, its basically a questionnaire they sent to university along with copy of degree/transcripts to check and verify the details.

    Your logic is always near to solution.

    Contact the NZQA but also remember you are not to have any contact with the uni or anyone involved in verifying your qualification. I can't remember where is say's it bit coming from someone who's been there and done that I know you are not allowed to get involved at all in the verification process.
