German Agents Visit New Zealand

German Agents Visit New Zealand

Seven education agents from Germany are visiting New Zealand for ten days in March/April as guests of Education New Zealand. During their time here they will be visiting educational institutions in both the North and South Islands.

This visit will allow the participating institutions to form a close working relationship with the agents, and allow the agents to see first hand the quality of education and pastoral care that their clients can expect if they choose to come to New Zealand for their education.

Germany is a significant market for New Zealand educators. Interest in the visit by German agents has been so high that seven agents have been invited, and they will travel in two independent groups to maximise coverage. During 2002, 1491 German students came to New Zealand, and the industry has put considerable effort into developing the German market as part of a broader diversification strategy.

This visit is part of a comprehensive series by agents from many of New Zealand’s key education markets during 2003. These visits are all part of the joint Education New Zealand/Trade New Zealand ‘Five Steps Forward’ strategy that promotes New Zealand globally as an education destination.

SUMMARY What? German education agents visit to New Zealand When? 30th March to the 9th of April 2003 Who? Seven agents will be coming to NZ. They will be escorted by Education New Zealand staff whilst here. Where? The agents will be visiting institutions in the following regions: Auckland Hawkes Bay Waikato Northland Southland Wellington Christchurch Taranaki Tauranga North Otago

Education New Zealand is happy to facilitate interviews with the visiting agents and with participating institutions at your request.
