    NZQA look at the content of your (foreign) degree, and they will state if it is equivalent to the NZ degree in the list. The title of your degree does not matter.

    Hi jandm on Long term skill list its mentioned Bachelor of business Studies (Business Information Systems) (NZQF Level 7).....What is the meaning of this bracket thing (Business information system). Is this about specialization?

    I have studied Bachelor of business studies. I have also study some papers of business information system. But my last year specialization was in HR. So my question is does my degree fall in LTSS list?

    Please ask again if you dont understand my question? thanks for your help

    I did understand your question. But you haven't taken in the import of the answer.

    That is the title of a NZ degree, and yes, the bracket is mentioning a specialism. But your degree's title does not have to be the same. INZ are not expecting that every foreign applicant will have a NZ degree. They are expecting them to have a foreign degree, during which they studied approximately the same topics to the same depth for the same length of time as any NZ student would, who did that NZ degree, if they are claiming the bonus points. To find out if that is so, the foreign degree is looked at in detail, and compared with the subject matter for the NZ degree.

    If you put in for IQA, you will need to tell NZQA that you are applying for SMC with (whatever) career, ANZSCO number (whatever it is), and ask them to check if your degree is comparable with the NZ ones in the LTSSL list for that career.
