The ‘Creative & Technical: Thai students & New Zealand’ exhibition is being held at the Thai Creative Design Centre (TCDC) on the sixth floor of Emporium mall from 19 to 25 November.

New Zealand is hosting the exhibition to showcase New Zealand’s study options in creative and technical disciplines, including architecture, design, engineering and the visual arts.

Mr Izak Human, Regional Director Southeast Asia for the government agency Education New Zealand, says:

“New Zealand is a top quality education destination that equips students with the skills and experiences to succeed academically and in their chosen career. That is evident in the works on display in this exhibition, which include pieces from student designers, photographers, aspiring architects and innovative engineers.

“Many of the works on display bring together different parts of Thai and New Zealand culture and, reading the exhibition testimonials, it is clear that coming to New Zealand has had a significant impact on these students,” says Mr Human.

“I believe that is because our approach to education and learning is innovative, but also welcoming and personalised. Studying in New Zealand helps students discover what they’re capable of and offers them the support to realise their goals and ambitions.”

One exhibitor, Kanokporn Pongjetanapong, a PhD student in the Engineering Science department at the University of Auckland, is displaying a simulation tool she developed to better manage workflow in healthcare environments, as increasing pressure is placed on health systems worldwide.

“Since the beginning of my research, I have received tremendous support from both my professors. They always have great advice and are open to fresh ideas. Settling down in New Zealand has been naturally easy,” says Ms Pongjetanapong.

“In my opinion New Zealand’s education is among the best in the world, particularly the support system provided for students and the enriching environment that inspires innovation,” she says.

The exhibition includes works from students studying at a range of levels in New Zealand from universities to institutes of technology and private training establishments.

Each year, around 3,000 Thai students study in New Zealand in primary, secondary and tertiary education. New Zealand is a top quality destination that performs extremely well in international tertiary ranking systems – all New Zealand’s universities were among the world’s top 500 in the latest QS World University Rankings.
