Our response to the New Zealand government's announcement

The New Zealand government have today announced an overhaul of post-study work rights, meaning that they will offer the second most generous post-study work rights in the world.

Responding to the announcement, Sue Edwards a spokesperson for Destination for Education, said: “Today’s announcement from the New Zealand government is yet another sign of how the UK is falling behind its global competitors. It is imperative that the upcoming Immigration Bill sets out provisions for a clear, consistent and transparent international student strategy for growth to ensure we remain open to students from across the globe and continue to benefit from the economic, social and cultural contributions they bring to the UK”
