The new Study with New Zealand study matching tool is now live
This new tool, on the StudywithNewZealand.govt.nz (SwNZ) website, is an easy-to-use way for students considering a New Zealand education experience to find their ideal course, school or institution. Education providers are encouraged to check their profiles and course listings are up to date.
Education New Zealand Manapou ki te Ao (ENZ) has launched this revamped study matching tool on the SwNZ website to replace the previous MyStudyNZ tool. It is a useful tool for Aotearoa New Zealand's education providers to be able to promote their courses to students online.
Geoff Bilbrough, ENZ’s General Manager of Marketing said that with the launch of the new StudywithNewZealand website, it was important to continue with the study matching tool as feedback from the sector had indicated it was a valuable tool for providers to connect with potential students and make them aware of the courses they offered.
"The sector told us that the previous matching tool, MyStudyNZ, had been positively received and tended to generate leads that were more engaged.
“We believe this new tool will continue to provide significant benefits to education providers and prospective students as it guides international students to study options that match their personal interests and past qualifications.
“To get the most out of the new tool, it is important that education providers’ profiles and course listings on the SwNZ site are up to date and accurate. This will help present your institution and your courses to the right students”, he added.
While ENZ does carry out a major data upgrade for all institutions twice a year (via our partner IDP), now is a good time to check your information is displaying accurately on our Study with New Zealand website. Education providers will have recently received an email with information on how to do this. It is a very straightforward process, and ENZ encourages providers to check their profiles and ensure that the name of your institution or school is correct and that your profile makes the most of all the features the system offers. Make sure your keywords are relevant and your profile includes full descriptions and photos to help you stand out to potential students.
Tertiary providers are being asked to check course study mode, start dates, costs, venue, and the duration as this information is used in the new study matching tool and the SwNZ search tool. The link to the admin platform to be able to check these details is available here: www.idp-connect.com/sign-in
If you did not receive this email, do not currently have access to the admin platform, or have any questions about the tool, you can email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A how to guide for tertiary providers has been developed and is available here.
