15 fashion technology students from New Zealand had been awarded scholarships to study in Tamil Nadu for almost two months. According to a release from Education New Zealand, the government agency for international education in NZ, said that the government had awarded 15 students of New Zealand Institute of Fashion Technology to study at Bannari Amman Institute of Technology in Erode district of Tamil Nadu.
Ziena Jalil, Education New Zealand’s regional director for South Asia stated that, the scholarship will enable students of NZ to experience life and study in a different country and culture. It will also increase the flow of new ideas and new thinking between the two countries and will further lead to reciprocal research and business opportunities.
Students will be introduced to aspects of yarn, textile and fashion design and manufacturing. They will also be given opportunities to undertake research and recreate a high fashion garment for their design and production challenge during their stay in Erode.
