‘Fridays with Unitec’ designed to shine virtual spotlight on Unitec‘s offerings for International students

Unitec is launching a "Fridays with Unitec" series of webinars, designed to offer International students in its key markets a taste of what’s on offer at a range of its Schools. 

With international travel currently on hold due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, Unitec’s International team has come up with the novel way of engaging with students virtually, using webinars to outline its courses and talk to with new and existing students.
“New Zealand remains an attractive market to international students as a safe destination to study abroad,” said Farhana Nalar, manager of International Market Development at Unitec.  “We didn’t want to miss the opportunity to showcase the range of programmes we have on offer for International students, so the ‘Fridays with Unitec’ series is designed to give them a taste of what they can experience when they come to Unitec,” she added. 
The series launches with a session with Unitec’s School of Applied Business where the School’s Academic Programme leaders Marama Saifoloi, Liz Rainsbury and Antoinette Wessels will discuss the range of programmes on offer for International Students.  Webinar participants will also hear from a range of industry experts and have the ability to ask questions of any of the hosts.
Other webinars included in the six-week series include Computing & Information Technology; Construction & Engineering; Building Construction; Architecture; and Creative Industries.
Dila Beisembayeva, Academic Programme Manager at Unitec’s School of Computing and Information Technology, recently co-hosted a webinar on cybersecurity for the Pune Institute of Computer Technology students in India.  Dila worked closely with industry partners to develop the one-year  NZ Diploma in Cybersecurity at Unitec; the country’s first tertiary institution to have developed a cyber-qualification in the pre-degree space (Level 6). 
The webinars will be held each Friday at 17:00 NZ time.  Click here to register.
