Photos on Facebook
We have libraries of photos on our Facebook pages NZIIU Student Exchange that have been taken by past exchange students. They come from a range of countries in Europe and from Japan and show orientation sessions, host families, food, touristy shots and a host of activities.
It’s time to get serious about your application
Now is a great time to take the first step on your exchange journey. Most applications for exchanges starting in December of 2011 and January of 2012 have to be complete by the end of August. It can take a while to get through the process so if you haven’t already submitted your initial application, it would be a good idea to do it now.
Language Olympics Scholarship Winner
NZIIU offered a $4000 scholarship to a student in the Gold category of Language Perfect’s 2010 Language Olympics. It has taken some time to work through our usual application procedures but we are pleased to announce that Julia Carrington of Timaru is this year’s winner. Julia is in Year 13 at Craighead Diocesan School for Girls and is a very worthy winner. She will be going to France for a semester starting in January and hopes to perfect her command of French as well as to make good friends and enjoy life in a French family. We are delighted to be able to help Julia have such an exciting and life-changing adventure.
