Increase your understanding and knowledge of international education to provide an excellent experience for international students.
International Education: Issues and trends in theory, policy and practice is the only postgraduate-level course offered in New Zealand that is designed for people working in international education. It aims to increase their understanding of intercultural dynamics so they can provide an improved student experience.
This course will provide opportunities for you to take what you’re learning and apply it to your own role in teaching, policy or support. You will learn the theory behind good practice and have the opportunity to share your professional experience.
Continue to work full time while you study from anywhere in New Zealand or overseas. This course is taught entirely online using e-readings, video and an online blog.
We offer other online courses that will complement this International Education course and allow you to complete a postgraduate qualification.
This is a Summer Trimester course which runs from November to February.
