New Zealand attracts international students from all over the world, with its low cost of living, study opportunities and internationally-renowned education system. International students looking to New Zealand for their student journey are fortunate to have many options and experiences available to choose from.
Choosing the right programme of study and suitable education provider can often be a daunting experience. ISEA Accredited Education Agencies promoting New Zealand as a study destination both on and offshore are specialists in their area and can provide valuable support and advice to prospective international students looking to study in New Zealand. They have completed comprehensive training to ensure they are adequately prepared to guide and assist prospective international students.
Why use an Education Agent?
An Education Agent will guide the student and provide options around educational opportunities and choosing the appropriate institution. The Education Agent will assist the student to make an informed decision and therefore must possess first-hand knowledge about the many aspects of the student journey from enquiry through to enrolment stage. The Education Agent should also assist with follow up support after commencement of study to ensure the chosen destination and program of study is meeting the student’s expectations.
ISEA Accredited Education Agencies
An Accredited Education Agency is an organisation operated by experienced and trusted Education Agents who have met the criteria set by the International Standards for Education Agents (ISEA) as the Accreditation Authority. An accredited Education Agency should meet a comprehensive structure that ensures they meet minimum competency requirements and standards. Compliance with the regulations of the Education Sector, Immigration New Zealand and the Code of Practice are three key areas ISEA will check during the assessment.
Education Agencies are reassessed every year to maintain accreditation status.
