International students protest NZQA qualifications block

Dozens of international students are about to start picketing outside the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment offices in Auckland today.

It comes after NZQA blocked them from receiving their qualifications over concerns about the assessment practices at their school.

The students were notified on their second-to-last day of study that their results would not be released.

Twenty of them were only a day away from graduating with business diplomas.
