Global education services provider Navitas Limited (NVT) is pleased to announce that it has entered into contract discussions with New Zealand’s University of Canterbury for the establishment of a college for international students on the University’s Christchurch campus. In a meeting held earlier today the University’s Council approved the progression of contract negotiations with Navitas following a public tender process under which Navitas was selected as the preferred partner.
“We are delighted to be progressing discussions with the University of Canterbury, not only because it is one of the country’s most prestigious universities but also because it would be our first University Programs college in New Zealand, a popular and highly regarded international education destination,” said Rod Jones, CEO of Navitas. Subject to contract finalisation it is anticipated the college could be operational by the second half of 2013.
