3.1 History of the education:

The passing of the Education Act 1877 established New Zealand's first free national system of primary education. on that time primary schools are run by the government and many children didn't attend the primary schools because they were belonged from the rural areas. In 1900 below 10 % (Wikipedia, 2012)students attend the secondary schools and secondary schools provide free education to those students who passed from the primary education. And in 1917 37%(Wikipedia, 2012)students went to school for secondary 1977 tertiary education comes which means higher education or further study after the secondary education. It also applicable only when the students passed from secondary education.

3.2 Size ofeducation in market:

Education contributes great growth in newzealand GDP. In the year of 2001 $1.3billion(Stroombergen, 2008)earned by the government from the international fee paying students which comes from other and it contributes to the GDP and in the year 2003 It had crossed 2 billon and contribute approximately $2.2 billion to the GDP. And many students come to New Zealand to do work and to get the education the usually international students paid $6500 on tuition fees and $17600for their living expenseTertiary and other post-school education fees are collected for a range of degree, certificate, or diploma courses according to the latest survey 100,000 students come to newzealand for the study and only 20% get the residency.In the year 31 December 2011, mostly international studentswere from China (23 per cent), South Korea (13 per cent), and India (13 per cent)(immigration New Zealand, 2012).

The average annual growth rate of 30% international students enrolled in New Zealand schools and public tertiary institutions in 1994-1997. But growth rate dropped down critically 8%on 1997. It happened only from the Asian financial crisis but in 2002 year 80,000 international students enrolled in newzealand institution colleges and university .and that time growth increase 52%(Stroombergen, 2008). It increases because now there is trend of foreign education in world.

3.3 Strength of education system:

The great majority of newzealand students are repeatedly up with the best in the world. In the latest survey, New Zealand students were ranked fourth in reading literacy, fourth in scientific literacy and seventh in mathematical literacy. Australia has recorded a significant decline on all the skills measured. England hasslipped 25th in reading, eighth to 28th in maths and fourth to16th in science. (Lind, 2012)This reflects very favourably on the quality of New Zealand teachers.

New Zealand universities are also the big strength of New Zealand education is well-recognised internationally. More than half are ranked among the top 500 universities in the world and the famous university is Auckland University is on the 83th rank in all world universities and no.1 in New Zealand. All have strong international connections and collaborate with universities in other countries on a range of research and teaching programmes.Universities provide many good courses and degrees. And they teach to the students with every new technology and practical work.


The weakness of the New Zealand education system is increasing dollar rate which effects on the other countries' currencies. And it effects on the international students. In the Christchurch and in some Auckland regions international students living expense has been changed. At Christchurch in the year of 2011 the international students living expense has been changed from $12000 to $13000 per year (Christchurch mail, 2012) and now in 2012 international students can come only if they have 15000 or 17000 NZ dollars for living expense. There is some changes in the tuition fees also and some courses has been changed from 1 year into 2 years And after this change there is great decline in the enrolment of international students.
