International student FAQs
ENZ’s digital team is strengthening support for international students by launching a fresh and upgraded set of frequently-asked questions on our Study in New Zealand (SiNZ) website.
The newly-launched FAQs cover study choices, applications, accommodation and finance, as well as questions on living, working and travelling in New Zealand. The content is timely, verified and sorted by categories.
Lucia Alarcon, ENZ’s International Digital Project Manager, said reviewing the FAQs involved listening closely to the international student audience and finding out what they most wanted to know.
“The updated questions were based on ENZ’s common student inquiries, and on the most searched-for questions in search engines and on the online Q&A site Quora,” she said.
“We’ve also added links from the answers to other parts of the website, encouraging students to further explore the wealth of useful content we have about studying in New Zealand.”
The FAQ content has been updated, expanded and fully optimised for internet search to ensure it ranks highly in search engine results. The How to Apply section of the website also links to the FAQs to give the page more visibility to interested students.
Lucia expects the expanded FAQs will be a valuable tool not only to support student inquiries but to drive the number of student referrals to institutions.
“It’s all part of our ongoing review of SiNZ to make it more relevant, helpful and outcome-driven,” she said.
