You’ve been eyeing the US, maybe Canada, maybe the United Kingdom for college or post graduate studies. But you’re concerned about being so far away from home, about safety, job security after college, and the quality of education vis-à-vis your parents’ investment. Maybe it’s time to train your sights further afield.
Enter New Zealand (NZ). Famous mainly for its breathtaking scenery and as the location for the Lord of the Rings (LOTR) series, New Zealand has emerged as a new favorite education destination among Filipino students. In 2016, more than 3,000 Filipinos were registered as international students, which do not include the immigrants who have settled in NZ. In a country of 4.6 million people, you’ll be sure to bump into a fellow Pinoy wherever you go.
