SHOP EAT SPEND READ LOCAL LOCAL LOCAL LOCAL Am interested in knowing from which countries do we get the maximum number of students who want to study here? Is it from China, India, UK or Middle Eastern countries? Do you have the latest figures regarding the same? - Ms Smith Hi Ms Smith. Although we don’t have the latest figures, I would note that most of our international fee-paying students come from China and India. Although most students come from China, India is slowly catching up. According to education statistics, the top five source countries for international fee-paying students in 2013 (the latest figures available) were China, India, Japan, South Korea and Saudi Arabia. I am a 33-year-old production engineer and have done my post graduation diploma in banking before I did my MBA level 9 from AUT. I was on a two-year study visa after which I returned home to India. I’m presently married and working as an IT service delivery manager for a payment gateway company in India. My wife is an IT eng BE, working as a testing analyst with a work experience of close to six years. Do we qualify to apply for PR and does my wife need to do a NZQA? - Samir Kuraishi Hi Samir. Seeing you hold a NZ Master’s Degree, studied in NZ for a minimum of two years and both you and your wife appear to be highly qualified, with experience, is very encouraging. We have, in the past, been able to get successful outcomes for applicants without a job offer with similar backgrounds. However, the information provided in your query is too brief and I would strongly recommend that a detailed assessment needs to be carried out by a licenced professional to test your eligibility for residence and the need to assess your wife’s qualification from NZQA. MATTERS With Saif Shaikh Immigration 166 Harris Rd, East Tamaki, Auckland Phone: 09 272 4424 email: firstname.lastname@example.org www.immigrationadvicenz.com IMMIGRATION MATTERS Immigration questions answered Now that’s promotional excellence DESCRIBED as “a thoughtful, internal campaign that had a much greater impact than was originally intended,” a stylised, branded poppy pot with poppy seeds has delivered another Australasian award for a mother and daughter promotions team. All About Promotions is run by Pip Burns and her daughter Bo. They recently headed across the Tasman to receive a bronze for Promotional Excellence in the Business to Business programme at the Australasian Promotional Products Association (APPA) Awards held in Sydney. The promotion was devised for their client The Skills Organisation, which wanted to encourage its staff, clients and suppliers to sow the seeds of remembrance in its commitment to ANZAC commemorations. ‘Grow Your Own Poppy Pot’ was the result and the pots and seeds were delivered to the clients’ desks on April 23, two days before ANZAC Day was commemorated in Australia and New Zealand. Award judges said the idea was simple and well-executed, “with gratifying emotional connection between recipients”. Bo says she and Pip are thrilled with the judges’ decision and to be recognised on such an important international level. All About Promotions has won four other APPA and local awards in recent years. Last year, a USB stick mounted in a wooden holder took silver in the category for environmentally friendly, sustainable, green, recycling programmes at the APPA event. The UBS stick was packaged in a recyclable wooden box, engraved with the logo of the client Energy for Industry (EFI). Messages about EFI’s energy solutions business and brand were uploaded onto the flash drive, and the nifty package containing the sustainable energy story was distributed to companies throughout the country.
