I haven’t studied in New Zealand before, does my overseas study or training count as prior study or training?

Yes, any tertiary study or training undertaken in any other country counts when determining eligibility, as this demonstrates you are not a first-time learner. This may include post-compulsory education and training, vocational, technical or academic pathways.

If you have questions about your eligibility, including prior study or training, please contact us at [email protected].
