Education announcement

The New Zealand Government yesterday announced a package of new initiatives to encourage further growth in New Zealand's international education sector.  The changes will make it easier for some international students to work during their studies and allow streamlined visa processing in partnership with selected high quality education providers. The lowest quality providers will be prevented from enrolling international students. Legislative changes will also strengthen the application of the Code of Practice for Pastoral Care of International students, and set up a new disputes resolution scheme to resolve contract disputes.
