Universities in New Zealand have established themselves as centres of research excellence.

“The major reason why Indian students prefer to pursue their higher learning in New Zealand is because the country has strong quality assurance systems which ensure consistent, high-quality education across all levels, both public and private,” says Ziena Jalil, Regional Director, South Asia, Education New Zealand (ENZ).

Ms. Jalil, who was in Chennai recently to participate in the New Zealand Education Fair organised by the ENZ, says, “Universities in New Zealand are important not just for teaching but also for research and the development of society and economy as a whole. As centres of research excellence they play an important role in economic transformation and development.”

New Zealand is the ideal choice for anyone who wants to equip himself/herself with internationally competitive skills and qualifications. It offers a huge range of options, says Ms. Jalil.
