In collaboration with Education New Zealand, Sri Lanka plays host to the New Zealand Education Fair once again this year, inviting students across the country to explore academic opportunities in tertiary education in this welcoming, scenic and trusted educational destination.

Prospective students now have the opportunity to discover a wide sphere of educational opportunities at the fair, which serves as an annual showcase into the tertiary education available in New Zealand. Those aspiring to engage in higher education overseas will be able to get a clear insight to discover why New Zealand has emerged as the upcoming new destination in the educational landscape.

The New Zealand Education Fair will be held on Saturday, 17 September, 2011 at Taj Samudra, Colombo from 11 a. M. – 5  p.m. and will feature 19 New Zealand institutions including five Universities, 11 Institutes of Technology & Polytechnics and three Private Training Establishments.

For a small country, New Zealand offers a surprisingly wide range of subjects and courses in tertiary education. It has eight top quality Universities and 20 Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) that focus on practical, skills-oriented training in areas like hospitality and tourism, design, computers, nursing, fashion and many others. Private Training Establishments in New Zealand are all quality controlled so students can be confident that their qualifications will be recognised.

With its spectacular sceneries and natural resources, New Zealand is ready to welcome aspiring students who wish to balance work and play, with engaging extracurricular activities, complemented by a supportive and extremely personal academic environment.

Adjusting to a new country takes time, so students shouldn’t expect it to be easy right away. They should take advantage of the excellent student support services offered by New Zealand institutions which can help with finding somewhere to live, opening a bank account and other common day to day necessities.
