The New Zealand Speech-language Therapists’ Association is the recognised national body for speech-language therapists.
New Zealand university programmes currently offering speech-language therapy degrees with professional entry programmes are listed below, including their accreditation classification and the term of current accreditation.
Full accreditation is valid for 7 years. Accreditation will automatically lapse at the end of the determined period.
In the year prior to the end of the accredited term, universities are required to seek re-accreditation. The university must submit documentation for review by a New Zealand Speech-language Therapists’ Association Accreditation Panel. This includes a site visit at the university.
Accreditation and re-accreditation is taken very seriously by the NZSTA. This protects the Public by ensuring graduating speech-language therapists are adequately qualified and maintains the New Zealand Speech-language Therapists’ Association’s commitment to the Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA).
