Wellington International Student Excellence Awards

The Wellington International Student Excellence Awards recognise the achievements and contributions of international students in the Wellington region – whether academically, the arts, in sports, or community, and celebrate the benefits of international education to the broader community.

Twelve excellence awards will be presented at an awards ceremony on October 20 2017.

A new alumni category in this year’s awards will recognise the achievements of former Wellington international students who have since excelled in their chosen profession or promotion of New Zealand.
