Taro PrutisartThere are number of skills I have learnt from IPU New Zealand. Academic report writing and presentation skills have been very useful. And for a highly international work place like Telecom, interpersonal and intercultural communication skills I learnt from IPU New Zealand have been very handy. Critical thinking and analytical skills are the cornerstones of the skills I have been able to obtained through growing up in IPU New Zealand environment. Though it must be stressed that all these skills are considered as a good 'jumping board' for the more in-depth skills that I have been able to develop further at Telecom.

Ratu Semisi R. SeruitanoaComing from a small island in the South Pacific, I was definitely out of place when I first arrived at IPU New Zealand, especially missing my family and of course the sun and white sandy beaches of home. This was where IPU New Zealand stood in, playing a role as my home away from home. IPU New Zealand taught me a number of skills and life lessons that I am blessed to have today. Academically, IPU New Zealand has nurtured me into becoming a better leader, strategic thinker, critical analyst, and good researcher, and has boosted my confidence in presentations and group activities. Socially, IPU New Zealand is where things go down. As young adults, testing the limits is what most, if not all of us do. The great support of the IPU New Zealand team was able to use this energy to develop fundamental components of our study experience. I believe this was key in moulding a balance in study life. Overall, IPU New Zealand has enabled me to fall on the right path to achieve my dream job and that is to one day become a diplomat. I am glad that IPU New Zealand was part of my life.
