Default Pre Assessment Result (PAR)

Hello everybody,

This is noman (Structural Engineer ) from Pakistan. immigration to NZ is my dream and i am going to apply for PAR today but i got bit confuse about the following question.

I am holding 2-Years master & 4-years bachelor Degree from Pakistan. Do i need to assess both qualification separately OR i can assess my Masters Degree and provide bachelor as supporting qualification as both are obtained from same institution.

Seniors your quick response is required
Thanks in advance

BR

Not sure if this helps, my partner had a 2 year masters and 3 years bachelors degree from India. We applied for IQA - for assessing BOTH the qualification (as part of single application - and you pay the same, no extra fees for additional qualification assessment). As part of the report, both qualifications were mentioned separately with respective points and levels.

I am not sure if you require NZQA Assessment, but if you do - it's better to apply for IQA straight away. We had applied for PAR and later had to apply for IQA as well.

Good luck with your process.

Thanks Mr.Josh for your help. Actually IQA costs more therefore at the moment for submission of EOI i want to go for PAR. Can any one tell me tell me if i go for my Masters assessment is it Ok to put Bachelor in supporting qualification. OR i have to assess bachelor first.

If i have to assess both in a separate qualification for PAR than it is better to do IQA.
I also contacted NZQA but did not get any response up till now.
Can any one share their experience so it is easy for me to take right decision.

Think you can assess 4 individual qualifications per application.

Hello
I take it you have checked that both your qualifications do need assessing?

As for whether you go for IQA or PAR, it depends on your preference and cash flow. As Joshbay said if you go for PAR and your EOI is selected and an ITA sent out then you will need to get an IQA in order to proceed with the application.
However if you don't get selected and you pay out for an IQA right from the start....

Yes one fee per person but each person can have up to 4 qualifications assessed as far as I know.

Default Re: Pre Assessment Result (PAR)

Actually I am getting 130 Points therefore i am also hunting for Job But it seems little difficult to get selected without job offer. However my skills listed on LTSS List ...

Conclusively at this stage IQA seems to me very costly if my EOI not get selected ..

Your suggestion are welcome

Hi Alinoman65, No - I did not. I just accessed one qualification during PAR. For my partner, I went for straight IQA assessment for both Masters & Bachelors degree and we had to pay a single fee for the same. Am assuming that PAR might follow similar process and have a single fee, but not sure.

Thanks Joshbay i just call NZQA about the matter they are also not sure about it .. however at the end we agree to submit Masters degree for PAR with Bachelor as supporting qualification as both acquired from same institute .
So i am going to do like this
