New Zealand is suggested as a good choice for international students by Nepalese newspaper República because the country has a Code of Practice that provides a framework for looking after foreign students. This system covers pastoral care, accommodation and provision of information. As well, New Zealanders have travelled widely and are known to have a great interest in people from other cultures. Another aspect of New Zealand’s education is that it is comparatively affordable compared to Australia or Canada. Universities in New Zealand offer many such subjects that could be of interest especially for Nepali students, said the assistant to New Zealand’s honorary consul in Kathmandu Namita Shresta. “Subjects like forestry, environment and film-making are offered there, which if taken up by Nepali students can be beneficial to both them and the country,” Shresta explained.
