Spotlight on Australia and New Zealand
and New Zealand have reliably been found among the world’s leading study destinations in recent years, and both countries have been closely studied, and widely lauded, for their strong responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recent surveys among both agents and students have given high marks – and top safety ratings – to Australia and New Zealand in the wake of the success that both countries have achieved in
limiting the spread of the coronavirus. As we turn the corner into 2021, the big questions will now be when and how the Australian and New Zealand borders will begin to open more widely to foreign students.
With all that in mind, we thought this was the right time to present a featured selection of our recent coverage on these two key destinations. We hope that the featured items below will be helpful in your own thinking
and planning for the year ahead, and thank you as always for reading along with us.
