The ST Star Awards reward excellence in the international education industry, with an awards ceremony held at a black tie gala event in London in September, in front of some 900 industry representatives and delegates from around the world. 

NZLC beat out the four other nominees in its category: Inforum Education, Impact English College, Langports English Language College and Browns English Language School – all from Australia.

Voting took place over several months from overseas retail partners, education consultants and other providers.

This marks the fourth consecutive year that NZLC has won this award.

Miles Stewart, NZLC Co-Director said the win confirms that New Zealand based providers can compete and succeed on a global scale.  

“It’s a great win for NZLC and for New Zealand, as our success will help keep the spotlight on New Zealand as a fantastic destination for international students.”

If NZLC win in the same category next year, this fifth win will elevate NZLC to a “Super Star” organisation – an exclusive club of very few schools and retail partners to have reached this level.

NZLC is one of the largest English language schools in New Zealand, an NZQA Category 1 school and a member of English New Zealand.

What's in it for me?
