What does NZQA registration mean?

TCI is registered by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority [NZQA] as a Private Training Establishment under the provisions of the Education Amendment Act 1990.  We aim to develop and maintain NZQA approval of programmes that are offered by TCI under the provisions of the same Act.

NZQA registration provides students with an assurance that our qualifications and courses are evaluated and approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and that the Catholic Institute's learning, teaching and quality management systems are reviewed and meet the NZQA requirements. 

NZQA registration enables eligible students enrolled on NZQA approved programmes at TCI to obtain New Zealand Government Student Loans (New Zealand and Australian residents) and Student Allowances (New Zealand residents).

NZQA registration enables TCI to receive Tertiary Education Commission funding for New Zealand and Australian resident students studying NZQA approved programmes.
