Thai study abroad expo a great opportunity
The 32nd TIECA Study Abroad Fair will be held in Bangkok on 18 November, providing vital resources for Thai students interested in studying abroad, as well as opportunities for New Zealand providers to meet agents and promote their institutions.
For the past 15 years, the Thai International Educational Consultants Association (TIECA) has organised the annual fair. TIECA is Thailand’s peak body of educational consultants, with more than 70 members actively working in the education area.
The 2017 expo will largely focus on the school sector, but will also include language schools, high schools and universities, with participants from educational institutions from around the world.
Jaruwan Pongjaruwat, ENZ Programme Manager – Thailand, said last year’s fair was very impressive, with more than 900 visitors attending.
“Last year, 12 New Zealand providers joined the fair, and it would be great to have even more this year. It’s a great opportunity for providers to interact with Thai students and agents face-to-face.”
At the fair, institutions have the chance to meet TIECA agent members during a networking event and discuss possibilities of collaborating together in future. There will also be education system seminars throughout the expo to raise awareness of institutions and increase student enrolment.
