Being a student in 2016 Vs 2017 in New Zealand – what has changed?

In New Zealand, there are eight main tertiary schools and these are governed by the New Zealand Qualifications Framework. It must be said that New Zealand has an advanced education system with established universities and plenty of opportunities for students. The tertiary schools do vary depending on what courses they offer, their cost and location but one thing that you can be guaranteed of wherever you study is the quality of the education.

Education in New Zealand has to be one of the best in the world and students are provided with everything they need to succeed in any subject area.

In 2010, the New Zealand Qualifications Framework was introduced which aimed to ensure that all educational programs were delivered under the same framework. This framework was established to ensure that schools adhered to a common set of rules and guidelines.

This framework clearly defines what skills students should possess when they leave higher education. It also stipulates what standards and attributes students should have once they have graduated.

The New Zealand Qualifications Framework plays a crucial role in ensuring that funding is deployed correctly.
