Statistics NZ no longer publishes the Survey of English Language Providers (ELP) release. We still measure the spending of international students on tuition fees for English language courses, recorded as exports of 'travel services' in the balance of payments.
We now source all spending on tuition fees by international students, including those studying English, from the Ministry of Education's Export Education Levy Statistics. Using an administrative dataset saves over 450 hours of respondent time each year.
For more information about spending by international students in New Zealand, please contact the balance of payments team at email@example.com.
