As part of a our response to Covid-19, we have developed a good ideas bank (see below). We welcome your feedback and ideas as we pull together to forge an NZ Inc. response to support the international student experience.  Our monthly Wednesday 11am Catch-up Cafes also provide ideas. These Zoom meetings have special guests that include officials from Education NZ, Immigration NZ, NZQA, MOE, etc. Past Cafe recordings can be accessed via the links below. Please email [email protected] if you are not receiving ISANA NZ weekly mail-outs for the Zoom link, and please check our Membership page for membership enquiries.
