Indian Academic Masterclasses showcase a different side of New Zealand

Education New Zealand, New Zealand’s eight universities and Indian storytelling expert Terribly Tiny Tales have teamed up to present a new series of virtual ‘masterclasses’ for the Indian market.


Each masterclass invites academics and experts in their field to talk on an unusual theme within education, and how New Zealand has a strength in it.

“The academic masterclass series is a programme we’ve done for many years. We’ve had great success boosting the profile of Kiwi academics in India, and showcasing the breadth and depth of New Zealand research,” ENZ Country Manager – India, Jugnu Roy, says.

“This year, we’re very happy to be exploring areas of research to ensure the reputation of New Zealand researchers remains high in India while international travel remains limited.”

International education professionals in New Zealand and other stakeholders are welcome to attend at https://www.instagram.com/ttt_official - you can access this link on your computer, or search Terribly Tiny Tales on your mobile Instagram app.
