Australia and NZ qualifications deemed compatible

A referencing exercise to tie together higher education certificates in Australia and New Zealand has concluded that the two countries’ levels of qualifications are equivalent.

Both Australia and New Zealand award qualifications from Level 1 to Level 10, and the assessment determined that each of these levels matches with its counterpart in the other country. The levels are granted under the Australian Qualifications Framework and the New Zealand Qualifications Framework.

The findings will help employers and higher education institutions interpret the qualifications, to improve student and workforce mobility between the two countries.
