The Chinese Ministry of Education has acknowledged New Zealand Tertiary College (NZTC) as a high quality international education provider on the renowned Jiaoyu Shewai Jianguan Xinxiwang (JSJ) Study Abroad website.

The JSJ Study Abroad website lists education providers outside of China who are highly regarded by the Chinese Ministry of Education. Chinese students who are considering studying towards tertiary qualifications offshore use the website as a reference point to determine a country and college that meets their needs abroad.

NZTC met with the Education Section of the Chinese Embassy in Wellington and the Consulate in Auckland in January 2015 where Education Section officials were presented with NZTC’s credentials. The College’s addition to this list is the culmination of five years’ negotiation between the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and the Chinese Ministry of Education with the support of Education New Zealand. All education providers who are added to the website have met criteria agreed between the Chinese Ministry of Education and NZQA.

This recognition of NZTC as a quality education provider serves as an assurance to prospective Chinese students and their parents that NZTC early childhood education qualifications are recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education and if study is pursued offshore, their qualifications will be accepted upon returning to China.

NZTC Chief Executive Selena Fox commented, “NZTC is honoured to have been acknowledged by the Chinese Ministry of Education as a quality offshore tertiary education provider. We are committed to empowering our students with the tools to become effective early childhood educators and we look forward to continuing to welcome international students to New Zealand, as well as support our students studying towards NZTC qualifications offshore.”

NZTC will work alongside our Educational Partners to support them in disseminating this exciting news to prospective students. To view the JSJ Study Abroad website please click HERE
