MyQ logoMyQ is the second information tool developed by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) to strengthen information available to learners about tertiary qualifications, and deliver on the Government’s objective to support better outcomes from tertiary education. 

Learning from graduate and employment experience

MyQ gathers feedback through an online opinion-based satisfaction survey about qualifications* from graduates to help prospective learners decide what to study.

MyQ connects graduates with prospective learners so they can pass on valuable insights about qualifications and employment outcomes.

This information is collated and made available on the relevant qualification pages of our Careers New Zealand website

MyQ collects information on every Student Achievement Component (SAC) funded qualification for level 1 to 10 (on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework). This includes qualifications delivered by universities, institutes of technology and polytechnics, private training establishments and wānanga.

Publishing your MyQ results

MyQ results are published at a national and detailed qualification level.

  • National results are published by Narrow Field NZSCED and Qualification Type as per the existing Key Information for Students (KIS) data and Employment Outcomes of Tertiary Education (EOTE) data.
  • Detailed results are published for each specific tertiary education organisation (TEO) qualification that meets the publication threshold.

The overall publishing thresholds are displayed in the below table.

Rules for publishing MyQ results

  • We only publish detailed survey results when the margin of error is below 13 percent to ensure statistical reliability of the information presented, based on the recommendations of independent research companies.
  • The margin of error helps to determine the reliability of the sampled score and provides confidence that the MyQ results reported are a robust and accurate representation of satisfaction for the qualification.
  • MyQ published results are based on a confidence interval of 90 percent, as used by similar tools, indicating that the true population proportion will be captured within the margin of error in 9 out of 10 samples.
