Want to study in New Zealand?
University starts this week for many young New Zealanders, and a recent NZ Herald article reports that this year, students are most likely to take a degree focused on human society or culture, despite a trend to encourage science and technology.
While candidates say the popular BA (Bachelor of Arts) is highly beneficial to their professional life, the government would like a shift towards solving skill shortages in IT, science, technology, engineering, and maths. Other students opt for a dual-curriculum to get an edge over the competition and more real-world tools to prepare for their dream job: "I realised that an understanding of business concepts was only part of it. While I would understand organisational structures, having a Bachelor of Arts would strengthen my understanding in culture and history issues." says one student from Auckland University of Technology.
