Study With Leisure

A recent New Zealand Education Fair held in New Delhi attracted hundreds of Indian students eager to discover the merits of study in this country, many surprised to see New Zealand was more than just a tourism destination. New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NTZE) and Education New Zealand organised the education fair in the capital hoping to woo Indian students with its niche set of courses and “study — leisure environment”. The fair drew a lot of interest in niche courses like viticulture (wine tasting), hospitality management, plant science and horticulture, food technology and sports management. NZTE officials said that in the year 2005 there were 2000 Indian students in New Zealand. The numbers have increased to 6000 students as of March 2009.
