Covid-19: Big gains for NZ education reputation, survey shows

From Morning Report, 6:20 am on 11 August 2020

A survey of education agents shows New Zealand's handling of the pandemic has significantly raised its stocks as an education destination.

The international education company Navitas surveyed nearly 400 agents from 63 countries.

It says 85 percent agreed New Zealand's handling of the outbreak made it a more attractive destination - more than any other country.

Survey author Jonathan Chew told RNZ education correspondent John Gerritsen that could have a dramatic effect on future enrolments.
