New Zealand Education System

High quality education at all levels

New Zealand has one of the best education systems in the world. Classes sizes are smaller, and the Western style of learning encourages independent thinking. Our system follows the UK model, with 13 years of primary and secondary schooling, and a three-year Bachelor degree.

The New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) oversees all qualifications so they fit into the New Zealand Qualification Framework (NZQF).

Our primary and secondary system is shown below, so you can see how to transfer into the right level for you. Most schools will accept students for as little as one term (10 weeks) but most students complete at least 1 year; some complete 5 years or more.

Tertiary study for ESOL: There is no academic requirement for entry, and many schools accept students from Beginner to Advanced. You can choose any length of study that you want. Generally, with intense study in an English speaking country, students can expect to improve their IELTS scores by .5 for each of the 4 bands, for every 10 weeks of study.

Tertiary qualifications (Academic and Vocational) are shown below, and NZQA specifies the minimum entry requirements. English ability is measured by IELTS, but many alternatives are accepted. Generally, requirements for entry to qualifications are

  • Level 4: satisfactory completion Year 11 (home country) + IELTS 5.0
