We exist to create an excellent study experience in New Zealand

In June 2019 English New Zealand signed an MoU with Universities New Zealand, the peak body representing all New Zealand universities.

This MoU states the Accredited Pathway Assessment (APA) of an approved English New Zealand member will be accepted as evidence of meeting English language proficiency requirements for all eight universities in New Zealand.

APA Approved Members

Members currently accredited and offering the pathway assessment are: 

Languages International

English for University Start 

Start Dates: 
1 April 2024
1 July 2024
23 September 2024



Applications are reviewed by suitably qualified English language experts
including independent panel members from outside English New Zealand to ensure quality and consistency.

This initiative will enable more English language students to consider tertiary
study pathways and longer-term study in New Zealand.

The Accredited Pathway Assessment approval is in addition to the quality assurance
requirements that member schools must meet, over and above NZQA requirements.

Approved members will use the English New Zealand Accredited Pathway Assessment logo
to confirm approval.
