  • NZQF (New Zealand Qualifications Framework) must rate your qualification at level 4 or above
  • Qualifications higher than level 7 will be accepted if the course ran for 30 weeks or longer
  • You may meet the requirements of the post study work visa New Zealand offers if you have gained two 4 to 6 level qualifications by studying each for at least 30 weeks, with the 2nd of a level higher than the 1st.
