Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ) has joined with the High Commission of India in Wellington to bring to life this partnership, which celebrates the growing education connections between Aotearoa New Zealand and India.

Watch this message from the High Commissioner of India to New Zealand, Her Excellency, Neeta Bhushan, on India featuring as Country of Honour at NZIEC KI TUA 2024.

The Country of Honour designation at NZIEC KI TUA celebrates New Zealand’s international education connections with partner countries and reflects one of the conference’s key valueshononga (connections). 

ENZ’s Acting Chief Executive, Dr Linda Sissons, said ENZ is delighted to headline India at NZIEC KI TUA and build on the strong foundation of international education connections with partners in the country. 

Students from India are the second-largest group studying with New Zealand. We are enriched by the skills and research know-how that Indian students bring to our country. New Zealand has a number of valuable institutional and government-level partnerships that make for a strong, bilateral education relationship with India 

We look forward to showcasing and celebrating these connections at NZIEC KI TUA 2024.” 

ENZ’s Regional Director Asia (excluding China), Ben Burrowes, said having India feature as Country of Honour is a valuable opportunity for the international education sector to contribute to the conference programme with sessions that surface insights and learnings focused on India. 

New Zealand and India have such a broad education relationship, from student recruitment and student experience to partnerships on an institutional and governmental level. There’s much to surface and share by way of insights to continue forging our strong education ties. 

“We look forward to collaborating with our sector colleagues to deliver a conference programme that showcases these connections and explores new partnerships moving forward.”   

NZIEC KI TUA delegates can look forward to programme elements that explore and surface insights from New Zealand’s international education connections with India and also experience a few cultural delights during conference.
