Quality and Standards

Study in New Zealand for a high-quality education and world-class qualifications. The New Zealand government has strong quality assurance systems to ensure  high-quality education at all levels of the education system, both public and private.

New Zealand government agencies monitor the quality of all areas of the education system.

This ensures students gain the skills they need and obtain qualifications that are relevant and good value for money. 

Agencies responsible for quality assurance include:

The New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) has 10 levels and covers a range of qualifications, from certificates to doctoral degrees. 

Any programme you’re considering studying in New Zealand should tell you which level of the NZQF you’d achieve when you graduated, as well as which qualification you’d obtain.

The NZQF levels are:

  • levels 1-4, which cover the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) - the main qualification in secondary schools - and basic trades training
  • levels 5-6, which cover advanced trades, technical and business qualifications
  • levels 7-10, which cover degrees, graduate and postgraduate qualifications.

Preference information

  • Cost is kept low

    New Zealand middle school / high school is one of the charms of lower tuition as compared with other English-speaking countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom. I want to let children go to overseas high school but I am paying attention to those who care about money a little.

  • The grade and English ability are not asked very strictly

    In the case of a school in New Zealand, the applicant's awareness of purpose and desire to motivate students are more important criteria than the results in the examination of the application. It is nice for students who are suffering from careers that they can find schools that allow admission even if the schools in Japan are not very good. Although the required language skills are not very high, if you have anxiety, it is effective to attend a high school preparation course that will receive English repair classes locally and increase the English proficiency while also considering elective subjects of this course

  • Generous to accept international students

    New Zealand where many immigrants live is very open to the acceptance of foreign students. Even if Japanese education does not match, overseas students are sure to change what they get if you change the place to a welcome country at any time.
