  • From the CE: Telling the world New Zealand is open for business

    Our purpose was to promote New Zealand’s world-class education and share the message that New Zealand is open again for international students. Travelling with the Minister opened many doors for us and led to useful media coverage in all three partner countries.

    In Denver, USA, Minister Hipkins spoke at the plenary session to open NAFSA, the world’s largest international education conference. Te Pūkenga used the NAFSA event to launch its international education strategy, and ENZ launched the sector’s I AM NEW global marketing campaign. We met with senior officials to reaffirm New Zealand’s partnership commitment to the Gilman scholarships, which enable students of limited financial means to study abroad. We also met with NZ EdTech companies, including ImmerseMe, which uses virtual reality to teach languages. The company signed a 7-year partnership agreement with schools in the area during our visit.  

    The next stage of the trip was Brazil. In São Paulo we explored the possibility of English language study in New Zealand for school students with government Ministers; met with the São Paulo Research Foundation to support the growing NZ- São Paulo research engagement; and met with key education stakeholders from three São Paulo Universities: USP, UNESP and UNICAMP. 

    New Zealand is celebrating 50 years of diplomatic relations with Chile this year, and our visit to Santiago included meeting with Chile’s Minister of Science, Technology, Knowledge, and Innovation, and with Kiwi alumni. We signed two separate Education Cooperation Agreements – with Chile’s Minister of Education, and with the Council of Rectors of Chilean Universities. We also visited Universidad Diego Portales, which has a long history of collaboration with NZ EdTech company, ADInstruments, whose technology has been implemented as part of the university’s educational model. 

    We were warmly received everywhere, and there was a high level of interest in New Zealand. It was great to reconnect with Kiwis offshore, and with alumni, agents and others who have a genuine interest in building relationships with New Zealand – and to be able to support their efforts in person at a wide range of events.  

    In other news, the recipients of the recent round of Prime Minister’s Scholarships to Asia and to Latin America are close to being finalised. That round of scholarships, which was solely open for group applications, will soon be followed by the opening of a second round of awards, this time focussed solely on individual applicants. Again, we will be seeking to encourage applicants from a wide range of backgrounds particularly Māori and Pasifika applicants. In anticipation of the next round, we encourage everyone to check out the alumni stories and other useful information on our scholarships website here.

  • Thirty groups awarded PM's Scholarships for Asia and Latin America

    The successful groups were announced by Education Minister Chris Hipkins today, and mark the outcome of the first round of the scholarships since they were paused due to COVID-19.

    Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ) congratulates all the successful recipients, who include a marae, non-profit organisation TupuToa, six of New Zealand's eight universities, Te Pūkenga, and a number of private training establishments.

    A full list of recipients is available here.

    Chris Hipkins also announced that the scholarships will open for individual applications this month. Applications will be open from 18 July - 31 August 2022. More information, including how to apply, is available here.

    About the scholarships

    The Prime Minister's Scholarships for Asia and Latin America are funded by the New Zealand Government and administered by Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao.

    Since 2013, the scholarships have supported more than 2,400 New Zealanders on learning experiences in Asia and Latin America.

     

  • ENZ’s new partnership with the Manaaki New Zealand Scholarships Programme

    The Manaaki scholarships represent the government’s single largest investment in international scholarships and have been awarded for more than 70 years. 

    The scholarships are a key pillar of Aotearoa New Zealand’s International Development Co-operation, offering more than 1,100 scholarships annually to students from 112 eligible countries to study in Aotearoa New Zealand, in the Pacific, or online.  

    “This partnership plays to the strengths of both MFAT and ENZ,” says Andrew Needs, MFAT Deputy Secretary – Pacific and Development Group. 

    “It will help us ensure that not only are we demonstrating manaaki to our scholars, but also offering scholarships that address the skills and knowledge requirements of each of our partner countries.” 

    ENZ will participate in joint governance of the programme and provide data and insights to inform investment decisions, as well as operational management, drawing on its expertise in supporting a world-class scholar experience. The partnership offers opportunities to develop closer connections between scholarship partners and tertiary education providers and encourage innovation in product development. 

    ENZ already manages the Prime Minister’s Scholarships for Asia and Latin America as well as scholarships on behalf of the Ministries of Business, Innovation and Employment, and Primary Industries.  

    “This is an excellent example of ‘NZ Inc.’ cooperation in action,” said Grant McPherson, ENZ’s Chief Executive. 

    Two recent Manaaki Scholars are Aminat Razaq from Nigeria, who has completed her New Zealand studies on sustainable energy – you can read about her experiences here; and Jason Nath from Fiji who completed a Postgraduate Clinical Doctoral Degree in Paediatric Dentistry in New Zealand – you can read about his experiences here. 

  • Digital skills and global citizenship at #NZAsiaTech Code Camp

    A team of six students from Te Kura Māori o Porirua, a predominantly te reo Māori medium school in Porirua, interacted with school students in Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Viet Nam, Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia.   

    The overall theme was tourism, seen through the lens of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) - a theme that is highly relevant for the Asia-Pacific region. Students were given the task of profiling their home country’s SDG initiatives, with a focus on sustainable tourism.   

    Team Enterprise 12 from Viet Nam work on building website project during #NZAsiaTech Code Camp 

    The North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence partnered with educational coding programme Code Avengers and Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao to deliver the event. 

    “With New Zealand’s borders having been closed for more than two years, it’s crucial that the next generation of students still have opportunities to build cultural competencies and make connections across the globe,” says Education New Zealand’s Regional Director for Asia, Ben Burrowes.   

    “The #NZAsiaTech Code Camp was an opportunity for Kiwi students to re-establish connections with students in other countries, while gaining critical digital skills to prepare them for the future. 

    “It also also gave a taste of New Zealand’s education offering to prospective international students from the Asia region, who might consider enrolling in high school or tertiary study in New Zealand in the future.”  

    Code Camps can help to generate subsequent visits by interested students to New Zealand. For example, the Code Camp held at Waseda Jitsugyo School in 2021 and at Waseda University Junior and Senior High School in 2022 has led to Waseda’s group students’ programme sending around 50 students from three schools to New Zealand for three weeks in March 2023.  Code Camp served as a great opportunity for students and teachers from Waseda University affiliated schools to experience our world-class digital education first-hand. 

    Honam Jeon, the Education Manager at Gangwon International Education Institute said the programme helped increase awareness of New Zealand: 

    “South Korea is very interested in international engagement and exchange programmes for school students. The #NZAsiaTech Code Camp was a perfect example we want to continue to join. Thanks so much again to ENZ for organising the well-structured programme.”    

    The online programme included team building exercises, English learning, HTML coding lessons, and the creation of a website by student teams, to demonstrate their understanding of the importance of sustainable tourism.   

    “As our students look to enter an increasingly globalised word, developing cultural connections and transferable skills is so important,” says Te Kura Māori o Porirua school principal, Whāea Evelyn Wharehinga.  

    “The Code Camp has been an exciting growth experience for our students, who have extended their digital literacy skills while having the chance to connect with students of different ethnicities and cultures across the Asia-Pacific region.”   

    Team Indonesia

    Team Indonesia was the winning team after presenting their newly developed website on Sustainable Tourism to a virtual panel of judges. 

    The students presented their sustainable tourism-themed websites to a panel of expert judges at the awards ceremony on 2 July 2022, with students from Indonesia winning the top prize.  

    Steve Budd of Code Avengers, a global edtech company based in New Zealand, said it was a great programme to participate in.  

    “It was a privilege to gift all participants a one-year free subscription to the Code Avengers site as part of our mission to build lasting digital capabilities for educators and young people, and bridge the digital divide,” says Budd.    

     

  • From the CE: Putting NZ back on the map in 2022-23

    With relatively low numbers of international students currently in New Zealand, the primary focus for Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ) over the 2022-23 year will be on rebuilding the sector. The rebuild will have an emphasis on quality and long-term sustainability. We will be working closely with our key sector partners here and around the world to put New Zealand back on the map.  

    This focus is reflected in the draft refresh of the New Zealand International Education Strategy 2022-30, in our recently published Statement of Intent 2022-26 and Statement of Performance Expectations 2022-23, and in our internal business planning for the year ahead.  

    The high impact global marketing campaign, I AM NEW, launched at NAFSA in late May, provides a strong starting point for the rebuild. As well as raising New Zealand’s profile by attracting significant international media coverage, the campaign has so far reached over 115 million users. This is a unified, overarching promotion on behalf of New Zealand’s international education providers – an essential approach for us to be heard in this extremely competitive sector. We have focussed the promotion on ten partner countries: Brazil, China, Colombia, Germany, India, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, United States, and Viet Nam. The current phase of the campaign includes highlighting individual student stories.  

    Travel to partner countries to support the work of locally based ENZ staff and our NZ Inc agency partners is also an important part of promoting New Zealand’s education. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s visit to Singapore and Japan in April, and Education Minister Chris Hipkins’ travel to the United States, Brazil and Chile in May-June have delivered the clear message that New Zealand is open for business, raised awareness of our quality education offering, and progressed our relationships in these countries. You can read more detailed reports about the trip to North and South America in this month’s E-News, and we’re currently planning our forward schedule of travel to other key partner countries.  

    After discussions with education providers, we have finalised the programme of in-market events where New Zealand will be represented through until the end of 2022, and this is now available on our website here 

    The reopening of New Zealand’s borders has also enabled the Prime Minister’s Scholarships for Asia and Latin America to restart this year, so New Zealanders have the opportunity to learn from international experiences and develop their global citizenship competencies and networks. Decisions were recently announced on the first round of group applications, while applications for individual scholarships are open until 31 August 2022.  

    This month we also formalised a new partnership between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and ENZ that will see ENZ take over operational management of the Manaaki New Zealand Scholarship Programme from November 2022. This is an excellent example of ‘NZ Inc.’ cooperation that plays to each agency’s strengths. You can read more about the partnership in this issue of E-News.

  • Individual applications for PM’s Scholarships for Asia and Latin America now open

    “Following on from the successful group applications, the Prime Minister’s Scholarships for Asia and Latin America are now open to individual applications, and this is the only opportunity for individuals to apply in 2022,” Grant McPherson, Chief Executive, Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao said.

    These scholarships enable talented New Zealanders who are passionate about supporting local and global communities to add an international dimension to their learning and develop their global citizenship competencies and networks.

    “We welcome diverse applicants from all stages and walks of life - you don't need to be a current student, and you don’t need top grades. We are looking for applicants who can display qualities like cultural awareness, initiative, and confidence. Previous scholarship recipients have come from a wide range of backgrounds and have studied in a range of fields, including environmental science, languages, law, the arts, and business.”

    More than 2,400 Kiwis have benefited from the programme since 2013, contributing to New Zealand’s ability to engage with key partners in Asia and Latin America.

    The Prime Minister's Scholarship is open to New Zealand citizens or permanent residents who are at least 18 years old at the time of application and have been a resident in New Zealand for at least 12 of the previous 24 months.

    Scholarship funding can be used to cover, for example, tuition fees to undertake a course in Asia or Latin America, flights to and from Asia and Latin America, living and accommodation costs, travel and medical insurance and visa fees.

    More information is available on the Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao scholarship website here. Applications close on 31 August 2022.

  • Diversification of International Education sees six innovative projects receive funding

    Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ) has today announced the recipients of the International Education Product Innovation Fund.

    Just over $1.6 million in funding has been awarded to six organisations, with support ranging from $200,000 to $300,000 for individual projects over the next 12 months.

    The projects that received funding span a wide range of activity. They include a global course for rugby coaches developed in partnership with The Crusaders, an online indigenous eCommerce programme, English language learning based on original, high quality drama content, global enterprise coaching and peer group learning, an evolution of an NZ financial literacy platform for global audiences, and virtual reality online medical training focused on childbirth simulation.

    Initial response to the Product Innovation Fund saw more than 150 organisations express interest. ENZ designed a rigorous process for submitting and assessing applications, working alongside Creative HQ – a specialist innovation agency. The process involved a clear set of criteria that were communicated to all applicants. A shortlist was prepared, and a final assessment was completed by an independent expert panel comprising external innovation and education experts and senior ENZ staff.

    Commenting on the recipients, ENZ Chief Executive Grant McPherson said the innovation and scope of the applications had been eye-opening.

    “The quality of the entrants was a clear indication of New Zealand ingenuity, market knowledge and cutting-edge innovation,” said Mr McPherson.

    “The sheer variety of fields and technology being utilised shows how advanced the thinking and capability of New Zealand education providers has become. The potential of each of these projects can now be fully explored, and I am confident the lessons learned can be shared for the benefit of our whole education sector, inspiring others to follow their lead.”

    The Product Innovation Fund was launched by ENZ in April to encourage providers to design and develop new education products and services for international learners. It is part of the broader refreshed international education strategy and is intended to fund programmes that deliver new, meaningful, and unique learning experiences from New Zealand with education products and services that set New Zealand apart from other countries.

    Providers will create new products and services aimed at transforming the way international learning is developed, promoted, and delivered. Funding and support from ENZ will help providers fast-track the exploration and development of new ideas, conduct market research, build prototypes, and advance their global market strategy. Lessons learnt from the programme will assist in developing future education products and services for the benefit of the entire international education sector.

    Details of the successful applicants and their projects can be seen here.
