Issue: Volume 96, Number 11

Reference #: 1H9dLF

New Zealand’s reputation as a safe and welcoming study destination. It reinforces our commitment to making the wellbeing of international students a priority and to ensure they are valued for their contribution to New Zealand.

The strategy was developed with input from international students, education providers and community groups about what would make the biggest difference to the experience international students have in New Zealand.

The strategy has four focus areas that cover the whole international student experience, inside and outside the classroom – economic wellbeing, education, health and wellbeing, and inclusion.

Funding from the Export Education Levy has been allocated for new initiatives that will strengthen international student wellbeing.

The new Wellbeing Strategy complements strengthened regulation introduced last year, the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016.
