Australian Bids to Run NZ ICT Graduate Schools
The New Zealand Government has announced $28.6M to set up three Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Graduate Schools. NZ Tertiary Education Commission and the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment will run a tender process for education provider/industry partnerships to provide the grad schools. Under the ANZ Closer Economic Relations Trade Agreement (CER), Australian and NZ organisations have access to each others markets. So it may be possible for Australian universities and companies to bid to run the NZ grad schools.
