AHA…..so you’re just about to start on a fantastic future after your AL’s and probably with your family, to study, live and work in New Zealand. NZ was recently rated the safest country in the world to live in with unemployment below 6% and many people migrate to New Zealand for they have come to the solid conclusion that there are certain things that no money in the world can buy. Peace of mind and a life of unending abundance are but a few.
Speaking to Sunday Observer Education, Keshawa Senaratne, CEO of Graduate Institute of Science and Management, known well in Wellington as Massey University’s GISM Campus in Sri Lanka, said that he never expected such a huge turnaround in Kandy and Negombo where Education Workshops on “Graduate & Work in New Zealand” was held recently.
Kandy’s Queens Hotel on 15th and Negombo’s Avenra Garden Hotel on 18th December saw a massive influx of interested students accompanied by parents to gather more information on a wide range of career paths available through GISM Campus to Massey University and then leading to Permanent Residence in NZ. Both parents and students came across a hands-on opportunity to get a feel of life in NZ and its world class education leading to professional qualifications readily accepted anywhere in the world through exchanging ideas freely with educational experts, advisors, academics and lecturers from New Zealand’s, Massey University and GISM Campus. He said that more workshops were planned in January 2012 in Colombo, Galle and Kurunegala to benefit a wider spectrum of students with very special appearance from senior academic staff of Massey University.
