Love working with people from all around the world? People looking for a new way of life often put New Zealand at the top of their wish list – but the immigration process can be difficult and confusing; professional advice is vital. IMPORTANT NOTICE On 1 January 2016 the Graduate Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice replaced the Graduate Certificate in New Zealand Immigration Advice as the pathway to licensing as an immigration adviser for New Zealand. As admission to the Graduate Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice has both specified academic and English language requirements, having the necessary documentation to prove that you meet entry criteria will speed the processing of your application. Anyone giving immigration advice has to be licensed. Unless you are an exempt person you must complete this qualification to apply for a licence and Bay of Plenty Polytechnic is the only institute in the country able to offer it. This very popular online programme can be studied from anywhere in the world. It’s an intensive, interactive online course with strict entry criteria, particularly around English competency, and students will already have a degree or previous industry experience. Content Details The programme was developed by Bay of Plenty Polytechnic in collaboration with the Immigration Advisers Authority and the immigration advice industry, to meet New Zealand immigration adviser licencing requirements. The qualification can be completed in one year of full-time study or longer if studied part-time. Details of licensing requirements can be found on the Immigration Advisers Authority website. We recommend that you check your eligibility for a licence by reading section 15 of the Immigration Advisers Licensing Act 2007. Please note there have been recent changes to the licencing regime: Students who commenced the Graduate Certificate in New Zealand Immigration Advice in February 2015 or earlier can apply for a Provisional Licence after the completion of courses A & B and a Full Licence after completing courses A, B, C & D, and being awarded the Graduate Certificate in New Zealand Immigration Advice qualification; Students who commenced the Graduate Certificate in July 2015 will be able to apply for a Provisional Licence after completing courses A & B but prior to obtaining a full licence will be required to complete courses A- D, be awarded the qualification, AND have completed two years under the supervision of a Full Licence holder before being granted a full licence; Students who commenced the Graduate Certificate in New Zealand Immigration Advice part-time in July 2015 must have completed the qualification by December 2016 as it will not be available after that date. From January 2016 the Graduate Diploma in New Zealand Immigration Advice replaces the Graduate Certificate in New Zealand Immigration Advice and provides the pathway to licencing. The requirement for two years supervision will remain. Students who complete the Graduate Diploma qualification can gain a Provisional Licence after completing courses 6015, 7012, 7013, 7014 but prior to obtaining a full licence will be required to complete all eight courses, be awarded the qualification, AND have completed two years under the supervision of a Full Licence holder before being granted a full licence.
