Exciting opportunities for study in China are offered each year by the Confucius Institute in Auckland with its network partners.


The growing interest in learning Mandarin at school is very pleasing to see. The ability to communicate in each other’s language will help build understanding and friendship. It’s great to see the work of organisations throughout New Zealand, such as the Confucius Institute, working hard to open doors to China through education. Best Wishes.

Sir John KeyFormer Prime Minister of New Zealand
