Default NZ points for spouse qualification?

Hi,
there are 1 or 2 points given for the qualifocation of my spouse. As I konw
all qualifications from Germany must be checked by NZQA. The problem is that
she has no work experience. Will she also get points or not ? She is a
sozial worker (hope so ;-)) 4 years study/degree. Is this worth 1 or 2
points.

Thanks
Matz

Hi...
The situation is with partner's qualifications is that you get 1 point for a degree and 2 points for a higher qualification eg MPhil or PhD.

NZQA will decide if your 4 yr degree is considered to be higher.. but generally its based on content rather than length of time it took to complete..

Hope this has been of some help

Work experience is not necessary for a NZQA assessment - though I believe they take it into consideration as you are also asked to list jobs after qualification. If the 4 years study was for a first degree, it's unlikely to earn more than 1 point.
