Notes:
Award certificates must be provided in their original language for all qualifications.

The following must be referred to NZQA for an International Qualifications Assessment:
- All honorary degrees.
- All listed qualifications where only a graduation certificate is provided
- All listed qualifications that are not Regular higher education
- All listed qualifications where the certificate number is preceded by a ‘T’ (alternate route) or ‘Z’ (professional degree)
-   All listed qualifications where study was completed at any institution outside of the country, including any overseas campuses of any listed awarding institution
-  All listed qualifications that contain cross-credited courses or papers
-  All qualifications awarded after 2017

All degrees certificates must be endorsed with ‘Awarded according to the Regulations Concerning Academic Degrees in the People's Republic of China’ (中华人民共和国学位条例).

Between 1985 and 1992, the degree certificate and graduation certificate for bachelor, master and doctoral degrees were combined into a single booklet called the ‘Graduation Certificate’. This booklet must state both approved for graduation (准予毕业) and awarded an academic degree (授予学位).

From 1993 the degree certificate and graduation certificate were separated and students were awarded with both documents. Both a certificate of degree and a graduation certificate must always be provided for all degrees as evidence of the degree having been awarded. Qualifications with a graduation certificate only must be referred to NZQA for assessment.

For bachelor degrees awarded between 1993 and 2007, the certificate of bachelor degree (学士学位证书) will generally show the category of study as Regular higher education (普通高等教育). If the degree certificate does not state this, then the graduation certificate (毕业证书) must show evidence that the degree is a Regular higher education (普通高等学校). A graduation certificate alone will not be acceptable.

After document changes in January 2008, ’Regular higher education’ (普通高等教育) must be written at the bottom of all certificates of bachelor degree. On the bottom left hand corner of award certificates there is 16 digit certificate number. The sixth digit in the series identifies the degree type, and the seventh to tenth digit identifies the year the degree was awarded.

From 2016 Universities have been able to issue their own award certificates

The wording used on certificates may vary. If there is no evidence of the program being ‘Regular higher education’, the applicant will require an assessment by NZQA.
