NZ Not Attracting Students

English language schools say enrolment numbers were already in decline before SARS emerged. Private Providers of English Language chairman Patrick Ibbertson claims New Zealand is not making itself attractive enough to foreign students. He says China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan, whose students are the highest spenders on overseas education, are being wooed by other English-speaking countries. Mr Ibbertson says marketing efforts in other places such as Thailand and Vietnam are welcome, but will not provide the bulk of students for New Zealand language schools. He says more students would come to New Zealand if they could work while they study, as they can in other places. (Story: NZCity, IRN)
