    **Governments strategic framework for international eduction was agreed by Cabinet in March 2004 and was supported by a substantial package of $40 million over 4 years in the 2004/05 Budget. Cabinet agreed to the overarching goals of the strategy (see slide), its underlying principles and management strategies.

    *Currently, the objectives of student policy are set out in the Operations Manual as follows:

    The purpose of New Zealands student policy is to facilitate the entry of foreign students in order to:-foster the development of international linkages and mutual goodwill and understanding through reciprocal exchange schemes, and-promote increased foreign exchange earnings from educational services, and-enhance the quality of New Zealands educational services

    Cabinet agreed that the current international education context would be better reflected by a set of guiding principles which highlight the overarching goal of contribution to sustainable economic development. These principles should also indicate that all students contribute to the economy but that some students have the specific skills and talent New Zealand needs, and should be more explicit about the balancing between facilitation of entry and risk management.

    *Work eligibility should be linked to New Zealands needs e.g. the Skilled Migrant Category (SMC) pathway. Student permits are for studying and any ability to work is a privilege not a right.

    Note: University undergraduate entry level is IELTS 6.0 (postgraduate entry is 6.5) and the estimated average time to move half an IELTS band is three months full time study. Six months would theoretically allow a move from 5.0 to 6.0.
