Being a student at Crown Institute of Studies just got better, thanks to an international memorandum of understanding with Upskill Study Programs and StudentsGoAbroad. As a result, Crown Institute of Studies now has more opportunities to offer their students.

What does this mean for the students at Crown? In a nutshell, there will be more international options opening up on the horizon, allowing students to get crucial international study experience under their belt.

To celebrate the partnership, Crown Institute is giving a scholarship to their top New Zealand Diploma in Tourism student each year to attend a 4-week summer course in Bali with Upskill, on Sustainability and Eco Tourism.

Why Bali? And why sustainable tourism? At the end of the day, for Crown, positive tourism learning is about learning how communities can sustain tourism, and how tourism can sustain communities. With Upskill Study Programs, Crown Institute can help cultivate this understanding among their students. And what better place than Bali? Tourism is the primary driving economic force in Bali, so it is crucial it is carried out sustainably. Tourism in Bali helps the island to grow, but also impacts natural habitats, marine life and their unique culture.

Crown endeavoured to partner with Upskill because of its unique programs. Among them, the 4-week Sustainability & Eco Tourism Summer Course stood out. Understanding the unique impact of tourism in Bali is vital learning, and Crown is proud to help their students through offering access to these courses.

With StudentsGoAbroad, Crown students will be able to access unique intern, study, and volunteer opportunities around the world. SGA offers students the placements around the world with meaningful work and study options that enrich their learning, helping give them the employment edge.

For tourism courses in New Zealand, students can turn to Crown Institute for high-quality education to help them be world-ready and confident. Visit the website today for more information at https://www.crown.ac.nz/.
