In this edition we meet Jayanthi Thevarajah, Destination Head New Zealand, IDP Malaysia. Jayanthi has been with IDP Education for five years and as is committed to educating staff and students about opportunities in New Zealand.
What does your role of Destination Head New Zealand involve?
My role involves training counsellors, acting as the key contact in Malaysia for New Zealand clients as well working with all the offices to grow the New Zealand student placement offer in Malaysia.
What plans do you have for promoting destination New Zealand over the next 12 months?
We have seen significant increase in students interested in studying in New Zealand. This has come hand in hand with upskilling our staff in key offices and we now have a New Zealand dedicated counselor in Kuala Lumpur and a New Zealand focused counselor in Subang Jaya. We will also be investing more on online for New Zealand focused promotion and will continue to hold events in all key cities.
In your opinion what makes NZ such a great place to study?
New Zealand is a beautiful country and it has such a great environment that is conducive for students to study, experience a new lifestyle and enjoy new adventures.
What can IDP’s New Zealand clients do to assist and support IDP Malaysia with promoting New Zealand to Malaysian students?
Keep us updated on all the new and exciting things that are happening at you institution. We really invite you to discuss the opportunity to organise in-office activities (interviews and briefings) for you when you are next in Malaysia. We would also be keen to receive updates and training on new programs via Skype or webinar.
When are not at work, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I love spending quality time with my family which is quite difficult to achieve when you have adult children! I also love seeing musicals.
