Higher education in New Zealand is not just in the universities – there are also polytechnics, institutes of technology, private establishments, and industry training organisations.
Currently, there are eight universities throughout the country which are governed by the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF). Institutions in New Zealand are constantly monitored and tested to ensure they provide a consistently high level of education and that they meet the highest educational standards. This includes The Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. Also known as 'the Code', this sees to it that students are well informed, safe, and properly cared for. With these bodies in place, New Zealand makes sure that students can be confident with their choice, should they decide to go to their universities.
