The Commission on Higher Education and New Zealand's Qualifications Authority forged the agreement during bilateral talks between President Rodrigo Duterte and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
The signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation was held during the bilateral meeting between the two leaders following the 31st ASEAN Summit here in Manila.
CHED chairwoman Patricia Licuanan and David Strachan, New Zealand ambassador to the Philippines, signed the agreement.
That is more progress than New Zealand has seen on the offer, first made by former prime minister John Key four years ago, in some time, Ardern said.
During the bilateral meeting, President Duterte mentioned that New Zealand is host to more than 50,000 Filipinos, to which Prime Minister Ardern said that "the Filipino community is a strong community in New Zealand".
In the informal conversation before the meeting started, they talked about travel and she said she was pleased Philippines Airlines was going to start flying direct to New Zealand from December.
Ardern also told Duterte that plans by Philippine Airlines to launch direct flights to New Zealand beginning next month offered a "fantastic opportunity".
