Paula Student from Brazil

Studying at AEA was great, good teachers, good facilities and an amazing cultural diversity. We chose to study during the evenings so we could work part-time in the mornings. New Zealand is a wonderful country with incredible landscapes and kind people!

After studying IELTS Preparation I took the test and got 7.0 across bands which would not be possible without Geetha’s teaching. Thanks to this I was able to begin the process of converting my nursing license from Korea to NZ and completing the CAP.
