My eQuals

What is My eQuals?

My eQuals gives students and graduates secure access to their academic records online.  It allows them to share their digital documents with anyone they choose, at any time.

My eQuals is a joint initiative among New Zealand and Australian universities.  It allows students to access these digital records from anywhere in the world, in a secure online environment and to securely share their documents with a third party, e.g. a potential employer or another university.

My eQuals will allow employers and universities to confirm the authenticity of students' qualifications from participating Australian and New Zealand universities as well as those from China, Europe and America (other countries are expected to join the service in the future) via a secure portal.
