History

The University of New Zealand Act set up the University in 1870.[1] 1870 (MDCCCLXX) was a common year starting on Saturday (see link for calendar) of the Gregorian calendar or a common year starting on Monday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar. ...


The Universities Act of 1961 dissolved the university and granted degree-conferring powers to the constituent Colleges.[1] 1961 (MCMLXI) was a common year starting on Sunday (the link is to a full 1961 calendar). ...


The University of Otago negotiated to keep its full university status when it joined the University of New Zealand in 1874, however, it agreed to award degrees of the University of New Zealand.[1] The University of Otago in Dunedin is New Zealands oldest university with over 20,000 student enrolled during 2006. ...


The New Zealand Vice-Chancellor's Committee assumed certain administrative functions exercised by the University Grants Committee[2] which in turn assumed some functions of the University of New Zealand on its demise.[1]


Entrance to the University

The University used to set its own entrance examination and also used to award scholarships to financially assist study (New Zealand University Entrance and New Zealand University Entrance Scholarship).[3][4] When the university was dissolved matters concerning entrance to New Zealand universities became the responsibility of the Universities Entrance Board, a subcommittee of the University Grants Committee.[1] The Universities Entrance Board was in turn amalgamated into the New Zealand Qualifications Authority in 1990.[5] The National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) is New Zealands main secondary school qualification offered to senior high school students—Year 11 through to Year 13. ... The New Zealand University Bursary or Bursary was New Zealands standard secondary school leaving qualification gained at the end of NZ Form VII (= UK Upper Sixth Form). ... The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) is the New Zealand government department tasked with providing national and international leadership in assessment and qualifications. ... This article is about the year. ...


Te Wa-nanga o Aotearoa

For a while, Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, a wānanga (a type of New Zealand educational institution), had been calling itself the University of New Zealand as its English translation. This institution has no connection with the former University. The confusion stems from the translation from the Maori language to English. Te Wānanga o Aotearoa is a tertiary education provider, specifically a wānanga, in New Zealand. ... In Polynesian mythology, Wananga is secret, occult knowledge of magic and sorcery. ... Māori (or Maori) is a language spoken by the native peoples of New Zealand and the Cook Islands. ...


Eventually, after legal concerns and objections from regulatory bodies (including the New Zealand Vice-Chancellors' Committee—a group of university heads, and the Ministry of Education] over illegal use of a protected word (in this case, university) and thus possible misleading advertising,[6] the effective co-branding of the wānanga was phased out.


This institution is formally registered as a wānanga (one of four types of Crown-owned tertiary institutions under New Zealand law—the others being universities, colleges of education and polytechnics), and is to be regarded as such.
