Twenty five current and former international students gathered to share their education experiences and to network with other international students.

Activities kicked off with a scavenger hunt where the teams were given a list of clues and tasks to complete at different locations around the city. The scavenger hunt included a creative photo competition to create content for our social media channels. Photos from the scavenger hunt can be found on our Facebook page.

During day two of Student Voice, workshops were held to learn more about the pathways students took to study in New Zealand, their education experiences, and their views on what can be done to improve the student experience.

Participants also fed back on the new, New Zealand Education Story brand, creating their own execution of the brand posters.

ENZ selected three current international students and one alumnus from the Student Voice group to make up the panel members for the Student Voice 2013 session at the New Zealand International Education Conference. The panel members will share their education pathway experiences and the findings from Student Voice 2013. 

We are very excited to have such outstanding representatives of New Zealand education joining us.  

What's in it for me?
