Education New Zealand (ENZ) continued to build momentum in the Philippines last week, with an agent seminar in the province of Cebu which hosted more than 40 guests including 13 New Zealand providers.

“It’s been fantastic to witness the growth of student numbers from the Philippines and a big focus for us now is working alongside our key partners to ensure the momentum continues,” said Ben Burrowes, ENZ Regional Communications Manager, South East Asia.

The Philippines saw an 83% growth in student numbers in 2015, making it New Zealand’s fastest growing international student market.
