Micro Credentials are short programmes that are approved and accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA).

New Zealand Students (New Zealand Citizens, New Zealand Permanent Residents & Australian Citizens) are also eligible to receive a government subsidy for the course fees (already included in the advertised price) and international students must pay the full course price. 

Successful candidates will receive an NZQA certificate and the micro credentials will be registered on the NZQA record of learning register. 

NZQA Unit Standard Credits

Please note that NZQA Micro-Credentials are not Unit Standards and completing a Micro-Credential will not accumulate towards a learner's High School NZQA credits. 


Online enrolments are available but NZSFW must collect additional information to determine your eligability for the Government subsidy. To enrol, please complete the online application form on the course page and we will get in contact with you directly to confirm your eligability. 

International Students

International students must select the International Student Price Option during checkout to ensure you are charged the correct price. If you are unsure, please contact us to discuss your situation.  


Tuition fees must be fully paid in order to reserve your place in the class and we reccomend students pay their course fees on the day they book. We accept the following payment methods:

  • Credit card (via our website)
