International Education Strategy

Supporting international education to thrive and provide economic, social and cultural benefits for all New Zealand.

About our strategy

The New Zealand International Education Strategy 2022-2030, launched by the Minister on 16 August 2022, is a refresh of the 2018 Strategy. It takes account of the disruption caused by COVID-19 and what needs to happen to get back on track and move towards more economically sustainable and high-value international education into the future.

The strategy sets out two focus areas: helping providers of international education to build back onshore offerings, and building a new international education future. It has three goals and key actions for government agencies to give effect to the strategy.

  1. Delivering an excellent education and student experience.
  2. Developing global citizens.
