NZ-Iran Education Agreement NZ-Iran Education Agreement

New Zealand education institutions stand to benefit following the signing of an education cooperation agreement in Iran on Sunday, according to Trade Minister Todd McClay.

McClay is leading New Zealand’s first Trade Mission to Iran in more than a decade, and believes the visit has strengthened the New Zealand-Iran relationship following bilateral talks in Tehran.

“Under this arrangement, we aim to strengthen, promote, and develop education cooperation and collaboration between our two countries including academic exchanges and research programs,” he said according to a press release on the web portal of the New Zealand government.

New Zealand is increasingly chosen as a destination for students looking for world-class education, with 80% of Iranian students in New Zealand aiming to acquire a PhD.
