My Journey in New Zealand started as an International student. I have more than 5 years of experience in the international education sector and I understand the wavering of an international student.

Eileen Su - International Student Support Advisor
I have been working in the education sector for nearly 20 years, I have had great overseas study experiences in Australia and New Zealand. I really enjoy my current role that supports international students to find a better way to settle while studying at Unitec. It is exciting to spend time with our students and to see them graduate from Unitec.
