"I moved from Wellington, New Zealand to Brisbane begining February. I am studying part time extramural for an accountancy degree and work as a Finance officer, so am sure there is a clear link between my studies and work. What the calculator doesnt say is if the New Zealand university (Massey) would be recognised as an approved provider. eg would I be able to claim my study fees as work related self-education? "

"I wouldn't envisage that it would be an issue so long as you are not trying to claim any study prior to your employment here. Good luck!"
