Meet Zarak Rafiq, Northumbria's country manager for Pakistan

Zed In PageSawasdee Krub from the Land of a Thousand Smiles!

It is my great pleasure to introduce Northumbria University Thailand Office. As the Regional Manager, I feel privileged to be part of a dynamic team that oversees the markets for Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Indonesia and Pakistan; countries with different political, economic and social climates, not to mention cultural diversity.

We are responsible for the Region’s business development, partnerships, recruitment, admissions, marketing and promotion for the University. We work hand-in-hand with representatives, partner institutions, corporations and Government bodies in achieving excellence through the delivery of our value-added services.

With the presence of over 15 years in Thailand, the office has built a brand name for Northumbria University in the Region, seeing it grow from strength to strength over the years. This could not have been possible without the support of my colleagues at the Thailand Office, who have all worked hard to make it possible for us to attain this level of achievement.
