New Zealand Education Fair 2023 with APIIT Sri Lanka
On Saturday 25 February 2023, Asia Pacific Institute of Information Technology (APIIT) Sri Lanka in collaboration with Education New Zealand hosted the New Zealand Education Fair 2023 at the Taj Samudra hotel in Colombo.
The event allowed guests, which consisted of students and parents, to learn more about studying with NCUK at APIIT Sri Lanka and the fantastic university progression options in New Zealand. Representatives from New Zealand universities attended and spoke with guests directly through booths to provide information about their universities. This included free guidance on placements and visa advice as well as information on scholarships, discounts and payment plans.
APIIT Sri Lanka, which partnered with NCUK in 2021, currently delivers the NCUK International Foundation Year and is also accredited to deliver the NCUK International Year One in Business Management as well as in Law. By studying these qualifications at APIIT Sri Lanka, students have the opportunity to gain the skills they need to successfully enter university with 45+ NCUK University Partners to choose from. This includes the eight New Zealand universities in attendance at the New Zealand Education Fair.
During the event, several distinguished invitees, staff members and university representatives made speeches to guests. These included messages of thanks for those who attended and information about the partnerships between NCUK, APIIT Sri Lanka, and ENZ as well as the benefits that these partnerships have for students who are looking to study abroad.
APIIT Sri Lanka has gone above and beyond to create opportunities for students in the region since our partnership began and I’m proud that this event with Education New Zealand has not only been a complete success but unequivocally provides further options for prospective students and parents. I would like to thank all who set up and took part in this event and I look forward to taking part in more in the future.
