Please find enclosed a copy of the full NZQA assessment regarding your qualifications and a copy of a letter dated 9 November 2010 providing clarification of these qualifications.

Your qualification has not been assessed as comparable to a New Zealand Bachelor's Degree.

The qualification has only been assessed as comparable to a New Zealand Level 7 Diploma.

Therefore, we are unable to claim any bonus points for your qualification being on New Zealand's Long Term Skill Shortage List.

Without these bonus points we cannot then claim points for your work experience without an offer of skilled employment in New Zealand.

Without these points, you do not have sufficient points to be selected and invited to lodge an application for a Residence Visa.

If you require any clarification in these matters please contact me as soon as possible.

Yours faithfully,

Alastair McClymont Barrister & Solicitor

International Qualifications Assessment

Thank you for your request for clarification of the unspecified assessment outcome of Mr Ehsan Ullah's Master of Computer Studies degree. This has been referred to me for reply.

From the evidence presented the masters degree programme was not able to be compared to the structure and requirements of a New Zealand bachelor degree. An unspecified qualification at Level 7 was therefore the most appropriate outcome.

This recognises the study completed as comparable to the learning outcomes found at level 7 of the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF). The qualification is not, however, comparable to a New Zealand bachelor degree in the field of computer science.

Mr Ullah completed a two year Bachelor of Arts programme in 2003. Two-year degree programmes from Pakistan are recognised in many international jurisdictions as comparable to the learning outcomes such as those found at Level 6 of the NZQF. Where a master degree in Pakistan follows in the same academic field, and where the studies across the two qualifications are coherent and sequential, consideration can be given to assessing the bachelor and master's in combination as comparable to a named New Zealand bachelor degree in that particular field.

I nis is not me case in Mr Mari s qualifications, in that his bachelor degree is in general humanity subjects and his master degree is in computer science.

I hope this goes some way to clarifying the Mr Ullah's assessment outcome.

Yours sincerely
