Default NZQA information

Despite having a knock back last year with losing out on a job at the 11th hour, we are still trying to keep our eye on the ball. We are now looking at the second half of 2019 (as this gets me to my military pension point) to head over to NZ.

Trying to think of ways to spread the cost and I was thinking about sending all my qualifications of to NZQA to get assessed.

My question is, if they come back and say my Degree and NVQs are OK and give me an NZ equivalent, how long would these last before immigration say I have to get them re-done?

I've had a look around the NZQA site but can't seem to find anything.

PAR is valid for one year and expires if, or when you get IQA of the same qualification.

There is no expiry for IQA assessments unless the actual Recognition Statement has an expiry date.

Thanks,

That's what I was hoping to here. Best get everything together and get it ready to send off.

Hi Bobogib, We are just in the process of sending of the NZQA paperwork. Where in NZ are you looking to emigrate to? Ours is dependant on where I can get a job, which will probably be either Wellington or Christchurch. I would prefer Christchurch as the properties appear to be nicer and cheaper. Have you been to NZ before? Any knowledge shared would be greatly received.
