Just figuring out how New Zealand institutions misinterpret the rules set by NZQA on section 18.
From my perspective on LinkedIn,
“NZQA needs to fix rule 18. Anyone doing offshore study with world class universities should be exempted of the rule of 3 year study in a English medium degree. Is it based on geographical location or the course itself? . Come on, don’t tell me if i studied at University of Cambridge in Estonia, i am any lesser than a graduate “on the ground” in UK. Please fix that NZQA. Anyone with NZQA please take note.”
Remember, geographical locations matter. If you want to study in Monash, go to Australia and do it. Same as a lot of offshore campuses in Malaysia.
Any way else, you still need an IELTS/TOEFL. You cant run away.
1. Previous primary and secondary study in English
(b) completion of at least five years of secondary education (that is, the equivalent of New Zealand Forms 3 to 7 or years 9 to 13)
