Added ability for searching New Zealand education organisations

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) has made it quicker and easier to access information about tertiary education organisation categories on its website.

While there has always been the ability to find education organisations on the site by region and type, users can now also choose to filter organisations by their NZQA assigned provider category.

Provider categories are either Category 1, 2, 3 or 4 and are reflective of the findings of the institutions most recent External Evaluation and Review.

The enhancement to the website search function is in response to feedback from the education sector and improves access to information for international students and their agents looking to enrol in courses in New Zealand, as well as students, parents and the public wanting to know more about NZQA-registered tertiary providers.

The search function is available here and includes descriptions of each of the four provider categories.

What's in it for me?
