New Zealand Education Fair returns to Vietnam

Joining New Zealand Education Fair 2022, parents and students will be consulted one-on-one with school representatives on study options in line with each individual student's orientation and capacity, as well as be updated on supporting policies for international students.

At the same time, students in Vietnam will also have access to a range of valuable scholarships at various levels of study, including for government, individual schools, those offered exclusively in Vietnam, and other special scholarships. These will be announced and applied only to students attending events as part of New Zealand Education Fair 2022.

This year, visitors at the fairs also have opportunities to communicate with representatives of the New Zealand Embassy, ​​Education New Zealand, and Immigration New Zealand to get updates on the latest policies to study in the country. Concurrently, there will be workshops on topics of interest to Vietnamese parents and students.

Other activities at the fair include: Ask NEW Anything, where parents and students can chat directly with former international students about their experience of New Zealand, as well as useful tips for studying abroad; and Me & My Future Job, a self-discovery corner for career orientation, a product corner, and attractive gifts from New Zealand.

New Zealand Education Fair 2022 brings together more than 40 leading New Zealand institutions with many scholarship opportunities for Vietnamese students.

New Zealand Ambassador to Vietnam Tredene Dobson, “Education has always been at the centre of the New Zealand – Viet Nam relationship. It has fueled development and trade connections, but most importantly – it supports our people-to-people connections. New Zealand's borders officially opened to all students on August 1. We are so looking forward to welcoming back the hard-working, capable students of Vietnam who bring with them the vibrant Vietnamese culture."

"We are also looking forward to restarting our scholarship program, especially for Vietnamese students in the near future. New Zealand Education Fair 2022 is a great opportunity for Vietnamese parents and students to get the latest information about New Zealand education, and how our education providers can support the next generation of Vietnamese business leaders," he said.

Ben Burrowes, regional director of Education New Zealand in Asia said, “Overcoming the challenges posed by the pandemic, we are now focused on rebuilding and reshaping our international education industry towards sustainability with various innovative approaches."

"We are ready to welcome back students from all over the world to New Zealand, and ensure that international students enjoy the ultimate benefits of a New Zealand education whether they choose to study onshore, online, or via joint programmes," Burrowes said. “New Zealand's education is not only known for its world-class quality, but also for its student-centred educational philosophy. It is also a safe, friendly, and welcoming environment. We hope that the New Zealand Education Fairs 2022 will be a great opportunity for students and parents to learn and experience New Zealand education's aspirations and, from there, make informed choices for their future.”
