Korean students: “I want to study in New Zealand”
ENZ’s innovative “I want to study in New Zealand” video competition for Korean students is open, and there are some great prizes on offer for both students and agents.
Launched in October, the competition aims to mobilise Korean agents to promote New Zealand education and attract students to enrol with New Zealand providers (participating students must use the service of an agent).
The promotion of the competition attracted a record number of Korean agents to the ENZ agent seminar in Seoul and the ENZ team received very positive feedback about the initiative. While the winning students stand to gain a significant contribution towards their costs of studying in New Zealand, the highest performing agents will also be rewarded with a familiarisation trip to New Zealand (or flights between Korea and New Zealand).
The entry for the short video is open until 31 January 2017. ENZ’s Regional Lead, North Asia, Cecily Lin said this is an excellent opportunity for New Zealand providers.
“The competition is an invaluable opportunity to promote your school or institution and your region – you can maximise this by directly supporting your agents with information and resources,” said Cecily.
All video entries from the competition are publically accessible and will promote the student’s sector and/or provider of choice until the competition closes. ENZ will also profile quality entries and the winning Korean students through our social media channels in January and beyond the competition.
Recently joining the ENZ team is Dahee Sohn, a talented Korean international student skilled in social media, who will be working to boost our ENZ Naver blog and Facebook posts. We’ll be active in these platforms so please follow our posts and make sure you direct your agents to them too.
ENZ has also provided resources to agents to promote New Zealand – including an open poster artwork they can adapt to include their branding to reach out to potential students.
