New Zealand polytechnics are established under the Education Act 1989 as amended, and are considered state-owned tertiary institutions along with universities, colleges of education, and wānanga; there is today often much crossover in courses and qualifications offered between all these types of institutions.
In the polytechnic sector: Wellington Polytechnic amalgamated with Massey University.
Although being in practice one more concession in favour of the polytechnical institutes, these legal rules were fiercely criticized and contested by them, since in their opinion and according to the previous government (Prime Minister António Guterres legislature) policy, some polytechnic institutions have conditions to award the same degrees that universities have conferred.

 EducationGuardian.co.uk | higher news | Obituary: Sir Derek Birley
His pioneering work in drawing together the Ulster Polytechnic and, later, the New University of Ulster into the University of Ulster, of which he was vice-chancellor from 1984 to 1991, cannot be overestimated.
This was a time of major change in higher education throughout Britain, although the binary system of universities and polytechnics being cast in the rest of the country did not translate to Northern Ireland because the provincial government in Belfast had responsibilty for all levels of education locally.
He was convinced that polytechnic status was essential if the new college was to achieve its full potential; indeed, his first report to his governors argued for the name to be changed to the Ulster Polytechnic, and for the introduction of a multi-level array of courses, including CNAA degrees.
