The Minister of Education released the draft International Education Strategy 2018-2030 on 2 June 2018. It was co-developed by the Ministry of Education and Education New Zealand and will replace the Leadership Statement for International Education. The draft strategy takes a broad look at the role of international education in supporting an equitable, high-quality, education system over the coming decade. It contains three key goals and specific actions to help deliver them:

  • Delivering an Excellent Education and Student Experience
  • Achieving Sustainable Growth
  • Developing Global Citizens


Consultation on the draft strategy took place from 2 June to 22 June 2018.

To read the draft strategy visit the Education New Zealand website.

All of the feedback will inform the development of the final International Education Strategy that will be launched by the Minister of Education in August 2018.
