New Zealand may be best known for its stunning countryside, a population of 4.4 million who enjoy classy wine and herds of sheep. However, with study costs, financial aid and post-graduation employment prospects emerging as highly important factors in choosing a destination, New Zealand is gradually drawing itself towards the centre stage of international education
The New Zealand Government is investing heavily in its education sector with projections of international enrolments increasing by 2025 to more than double of what they are today. The broad range of study and research opportunities is also boosting their presence in the global marketplace. Moreover, 7 of the 8 Universities in New Zealand have consistently featured in the top 500 Universities across the globe. This is why more and more students are choosing to study in New Zealand.
Education is a critical factor in developing the skills and innovation required for New Zealand to compete globally, and it plays a significant role in New Zealand’s relationships internationally.Benefits of study in New Zealand
New Zealand is an island country in the south western Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses—the North Island, and the South Island —and around 600 smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga.
Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. New Zealand is a developed country and ranks highly in international comparisons of national performance, such as health, education, economic freedom and quality of life.
