The 6th Study in New Zealand Exhibition
By: The I'mACE Team
Representatives from 14 New Zealand education institutions visited Phnom Penh on, 28 March, 2018 to provide face-to-face advice and guidance to students and parents on study options in New Zealand at the 6th IDP Study in New Zealand Exhibition. There were 385 students and parents joining this full day event at Hotel Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra.
The event continues to be the best forum for Cambodian students and their parents to meet face-to-face with prestigious schools, universities and education providers from across New Zealand. Participating institutions represent study options from secondary school through vocational training and postgraduate study. Students and their parents were invited to find out more information on study options and application process at the IDP Study in New Zealand Exhibition.
“I want to study in New Zealand because it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world and their education system is very good” Ms. Ros Sreymom, Tourisim Senior Student, Pannasastra University of Cambodia.
Joining the exhibition was the Australian Centre for Education (ACE) to discuss opportunities to study the English language to meet the requirements of New Zealand education institutions and representatives from the IELTS Cambodia Official Test Centre also were on hand to advise on test registration and preparation.
“This is a unique opportunity for any Cambodian student considering studying abroad,” said Mr. Sreng Mao, IDP Country Director. “In light of ASEAN Economic Integration, obtaining an international education can be one of the most powerful assets for Cambodians in order to compete in the job market,” he added. An ever-increasing number of Cambodians are now choosing to include a component of overseas study in their education plans, believing it to ensure the competitive edge for their future careers. New Zealand is proving to be a popular choice as many hundreds of Cambodians have headed ‘down under’ to pursue further qualifications each year.
“This is not our first time to be here. We have already joined this event for a couple of years. I am here today to offer our various programs such as management, business, engineering, education, hospitality and tourism. We also offer pieces of advice on why students should come to study in New Zealand and the advantages of them to study in New Zealand.” Ms. Nguyen Thi Lam Giang, University of Waikato
“We provide a firm commitment to provide the best services to students,” said Mr. Vantak Chheang, Student Placement Manager at IDP Education (Cambodia). He added, “This is a rare opportunity for students and parents in Cambodia to meet with representatives from New Zealand for free entry”.
