Kolkata, Nov 13 (UNI) Indian students who want to have an overaeas qualification are now being trained in Kolkata by a Newzealand based company-Zeal Vision Limited.
Informing this to media persons here last night company CMD Sanjay Dhar said, as study in Britain, USA and other countries was not viable because of the cost and visa regulation, Indian students were increasingly looking for ways to fulfill their dreams abroad while most of them were preferring Australia and Newzealand.
Mr Dhar said while Australian education required students to be monetarily very well off and there was no guarantee of visa extension to recover fees and other expenses, New Zealand offered a default extension of work permit with minimum requirement thereby allowing most students to recover the cost of their study after the complete education within 9-12 months.
'' Indian students are now mostly preferring to go to New Zealand as commercial pilot licence cost less than Australia and other pacific countries '', Mr Dhar observed.
Besides the New Zealand governments leniant visa extension policy for international students, he said, the country also allowed to gather relevent skilled work experience to apply for permanent residence in that country.
'' It is also the gateway to the Western world as New Zealand citizens do not require visas to work in Australia or to visit USA, UK or other Europeon, South American and many other countries '' he maintained.
Mr Dhar informed that courses available for students from India in Newzealand were business management, IT and computer application, hospitality management,cookery,skin therapy,commercial pilot licence, aviation and automobile engineering.
Mr Dhar also informed that Zeal Vision was also trying to explore the tourism potentiality in West Bengal for tourists from the Pacific countries.
'' A new vision, hitherto untapped is to promote tourism in West Bengal, so rich in culture and heritage, but very much ignored and avoided from the itinerary of the international tourists from the Pacific countries like Austrailia and New Zealand. Our endeavour is to explore this potential and make West Bengal a destination in the tourist circuit from the Pacific,'' he opined.
