NZ to showcase ‘New Way of Thinking’ at 2014 BPIEF
KUCHING: New Zealand will showcase what makes their ‘New Way of Thinking’ unique and so successful during the 2014 Borneo Post International Education Fair (BPIEF).
A press release said for international students, the time to study in New Zealand has never been better, with very competitive tuition fees, favourable exchange rates, high living standards, and increased working rights for students.
Many international students are now eligible to work 20 hours per week and work full-time during study holidays.
This ability to work while studying is giving many Malaysian students a major advantage in the job market after completing their study in New Zealand, leading to powerful positions at AirAsia, Petronas and more.
Known in Maori as Aotearoa or ‘the land of the long white cloud’, New Zealand has established itself as a world leader in education, technology, and innovation.
Last year, New Zealand’s education system was ranked number one in the world by the prestigious Legatum Institute in London, while the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) 2013 ‘Better Life Index’ described New Zealand as a ‘Top-performing country’ for the quality of their education system.
The country’s universities are a shining reflection of this education system, with all eight New Zealand universities placed in the 2012/13 QS World Top 500 University Rankings, as well as being ranked in the ‘Top 50’ for courses in accounting, agriculture, civil engineering, medicine, law, psychology, computer science, English language and more.
New Zealand’s education system is not only consistently performing above the OECD average, but the country also offers a land of mountains, open blue water seas, metropolitan cities, unique towns, cultural diversity, art, extreme sports, and so much more.
The country is of a similar size to the United Kingdom, with a population of just over four million.
This small country is responsible for world-renowned inventions such as the disposable syringe, the bungy, child-proof lids, and the jet boat, not to mention a New Zealander was first to climb Mount Everest, split the atom, fly solo from the United Kingdom to New Zealand, and give women the right to vote.
