Can I use my NZQA Record of Achievement to find out how much prior study or training I've undertaken?

To determine eligibility for Fees Free, your NZQA New Zealand Record of Achievement (NZRoA) is not reliable.

This is because it:

  • only shows tertiary standards-based credits achieved at NZQA consented education organisations
  • only records unit standards and national qualifications achieved from 1993 onwards, and provider-developed qualifications from 2011 onwards
  • does not show credits that were attempted but not achieved, or study you withdrew from
  • may not reflect up-to-date credit achievement.
