We have some exciting news for learners studying via eCampus NZ. 

 In addition to your paper-based qualification, you will now be awarded a digital badge for successfully completing your studies via eCampus NZ.  

 Digital badges are electronic versions of paper certificates. They are becoming a popular way to showcase skills and achievements online.  

You can attach your badge to your social media profiles (like LinkedIn), email signature, resume, website, and more. Potential employers, colleagues, friends, and whānau can see an overview of what you have learned simply by clicking on the badge. 

We think digital badges are the future. They can help you to: 

  • Celebrate your learning milestone on LinkedIn, social media, email, your resume, and more. 
  • Attract future employers or impress your current one by showcasing your verified skills and achievements online. 

They are much easier to share than paper certificate and include lots more information about what you’ve actually learned. 

How to claim and share your badge

When you complete your qualification and your results have been finalised, you will be sent an email with instructions for claiming your badge and setting up your account when your results have been finalised.  

When you receive it, simply follow the instructions in the email to claim and share your badge.
