New Zealand’s educational institutions are well regarded throughout the world. There is a great range of opportunities available to international students
The 2007-2012 international education agenda sets the direction for government’s engagement in international education, and identifies PRIORITY AREAS FOR  ACTION.
The international education agenda describes how New Zealand can achieve the internationalized education system we need to be fully integrated with the global economy.

The strategy goes beyond the traditional focus on hosting international students.
In New Zealand, every student enjoys a supportive learning environment. With relatively small class sizes, students receive more personalized attention from their teachers than they do in other parts of the world.
For international students, this personalized treatment extends beyond the classroom. New Zealand was the first country to adopt a code of practice that sets out standards for the care of international students, in and out of the classroom.
All institutions that host international students have staff dedicated to ensuring their time in New Zealand is happy and successful.
