Absolutely. All of our qualifications are accredited and approved through the New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) and are internationally recognised.
We have two values that we use to guide our decisions:
God Honouring (He whakahonore i te Atua)
Client Focussed (He manaaki i te tangata)
Broadly, if you’re a New Zealander who finished school in 2017, 2018 or if you will finish school during 2019, you qualify for a year of fees-free provider-based tertiary education in 2019.
If you’re not a recent school leaver, and you’ve done less than half a year of tertiary education or training (whether in New Zealand or in any other country), you may also qualify.
