“China and NMIT”

Will Tregidga started his international journey at the age of 17 when he left New Zealand for a year studying as an exchange student. This catalysed further international experiences which have led to his current role as Head of International Development at Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT).

Will has worked in international education since 2003, and has worked for the past 12 years with MasseyUniversity, the University of Otago and NMIT. He has been involved in the international education working groups for the new national institute, Te Pūkenga, and is the current chair of New Zealand’s Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics International Directors and Heads Group.

This talk will give an update on international education, both nationally and within the context of NMIT, particularly focusing on NMIT’s engagement with China.
