New Zealand’s quality education to be showcased in Thailand

     Bangkok, [18 September 2015]: New Zealand will showcase its high-quality education system to Thai students and their parents when Education New Zealand (ENZ) hosts its 21st annual Education Fair in Bangkok on September 26.
     Education New Zealand Regional Director – South & South East Asia, Ziena Jalil said more Thai students study in New Zealand than from any other ASEAN country.
     “With nearly 4,000 Thai students studying in New Zealand, institutions in the country are committed to providing high-quality education opportunities for Thai students.
     “This year’s fair offers a unique opportunity for Thai students and their parents to get the information they need about studying and living in New Zealand, direct from many of the country’s leading education providers.”
     ENZ is the New Zealand government agency responsible for marketing the country’s education system internationally. Some 40 New Zealand education institutions will be represented, including schools, private training establishments, institutes of technology, polytechnics and universities.
     Ms Jalil said New Zealand is popular with Thai students for several reasons.
     “New Zealand warmly welcomes international students. Not only do many of our institutions rank highly globally for the quality of their education, but New Zealand is also a very safe and secure place to live and study. For example, we were the first country in the world to introduce a Code of Pastoral Care for international students, ensuring that international students are well treated and provided with the best opportunities to succeed.”
     All of New Zealand’s eight universities are ranked among the top 500 in the world, according to the 2015 QS international rankings released this week, based on their academic reputation, employer reputation, faculty to student ratio, citations per faculty, proportion of international staff, and international students.
     Everyone interested in learning more about education opportunities in New Zealand is welcome to visit and meet with institutions’ representatives at the fair. For students looking for scholarships, Lincoln University is offering 10 Global Challenges Scholarships to international undergraduates in 2016 to engage passionate and cause-driven students concerned about global issues and wanting to make a difference. Victoria University of Wellington also invites outstanding young scholars and future leaders in Thailand to apply for 5 ASEAN Undergraduate Tuition Fees Scholarship.
     The 21st Education New Zealand Fair will be held at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit Hotel on Saturday, 26 September 2015, 11:00 – 17:00 hrs.
