International Education Seminar

Our International Education Seminar is designed to give you an update on current, relevant external issues with presentations from Education New Zealand, Immigration New Zealand, the Schools International Education Business Association and ANZ.

 We also have four Member Schools giving presentations on the pastoral care and wellbeing of international students with reference to current external environmental factors impacting the international education market and our schools in New Zealand.

 We will also be using this occasion to introduce International Education directors working within our Member Schools who have generously agreed to act as advisors to our Member Schools. These advisors each have significant experience and expertise in international education with an excellent understanding of the market, immigration compliance, agent protocols and relevant processes and systems. 

 The seminar is open to anyone with an interest in and/or delegated responsibility for international education in your school.


Target Audience: Board Members, Heads/Principals, Admissions Directors, Registrars, International Student Managers, and anyone who has an interest in, or responsibilities for, international students and international education recruitment.
