Market overview

In the past few years, over 20,000 tertiary students from Colombia have studied abroad each year.

The Colombian Government is seeking to learn from successful international models, such as New Zealand’s, and shows a keen interest in engaging with New Zealand in the area of education.

Colombia has the potential to become a significant international education market for New Zealand.

The high value of the Australian dollar, the perceived difficulty in obtaining visas for the United States of America, United Kingdom and Canada and the favourable work rights policy introduced in 2013, all work in New Zealand’s favour in growing its market share.
