Spearheading technology and education!
New Zealand is often cited for the Māori way of life, glorious ski slopes, delicious cuisine, and the plethora of fulfilling adventures that awaits any visitor. Yet, in addition to all the natural marvels and the mouth-watering food you can surround yourself with, New Zealand offers world-class tertiary education, making this island nation a university student’s paradise!
The country is constantly at the forefront of innovation, making breakthroughs across the many areas of science over the years, from renewable energy to nuclear physics. This in turn has laid a firm foundation for its tertiary education offerings that are on a par with the global best.
In fact, Malaysia’s first astrophysicist attended the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand and graduated with a BSc. (Honours) in 1975. Professor Emerita Dato' Seri Dr Mazlan binti Othman went on to help create a curriculum in astrophysics at the National University of Malaysia, as well as build public awareness and understanding of astronomy and space issues in Malaysia.
Space exploration continues to shape New Zealand’s future. Part of the educational revolution that sets New Zealand apart is its involvement in the latest Love At First Insight mission. Rocket Lab, an end-to-end space company delivering reliable launch services, spacecraft, satellite components, and on-orbit management, has scheduled a lift-off from Launch Complex 1 on New Zealand’s Maha Peninsula.
How cool is that?
Today, technology has revolutionised the education landscape, and New Zealand is far from behind. The country’s education system equips people with the skills and knowledge needed to participate, create and thrive in whatever pathway they choose.
"We want to create more opportunities for students to begin their study journey with New Zealand either in their home country or online."

Study with New Zealand!
“We’re building a reputation for study programmes that are linked to some fast-emerging industries such as gaming, 3D animation, cybersecurity and even in agricultural technology. It is those emerging industries that New Zealand is able to keep up to speed with, in terms of the skills employers are looking for,”
Global Rankings and a growth mindset
Considering that every student preference, course and university offering is different, it is important to make a well-informed decision. The great news is all of New Zealand’s universities are ranked highly on the QS World University Rankings and Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Embracing the rich heritage
Indigenous communities are often at the heart of all activities in New Zealand. In recent years, the country has made a huge effort to preserve and honour its Māori culture.
In line with its culture of supporting indigenous communities, the New Zealand High Commission in Kuala Lumpur (NZHCKL) has been running the Te Aka Internship Programme for the Indigenous Malaysian students.
ENZ has also done its part by collaborating with Universiti Malaya's Centre for Malaysian Indigenous Studies, the Tuyang Initiative and Orang Asal Academic & Activism groups that support the issues affecting indigenous people of Malaysia.
