Asia Aware Students’
Survey Research Results

The Foundation has commissioned this research with New Zealand senior secondary school students to benchmark and track their level of Asia Readiness. This research will complement the previous research with teachers, and will help the Foundation to assist schools and teachers to prepare young New Zealanders better to engage with Asia.

About the report

This research is to determine whether Year 12 and 13 New Zealand students believe that it is important to learn about Asia, the knowledge that they have about the peoples and countries of Asia, the intercultural competencies relating to Asia, the proportion able to speak Asian languages, their intentions to develop Asia Awareness further after leaving school, the opportunities that they see for living and working in Asia, and the barriers to Asia Readiness.
