Susanne Doerner

Director StudyNZ Ltd

Based in Tauranga, I am the founder of StudyNZ, and part of the team caring for students on site in New Zealand. We make sure that students enjoy the best overseas experience they possibly can.

25 years ago I immigrated to New Zealand with my family, and our choice to come and live in NZ has been great for us.

Through contacts with lots of young people and schools the opportunity arose for me to act as an agent for international students. I have a background in a variety of fields including complimentary medicine, commerce and logistics, and am able to give students the most comprehensive care that they can expect when coming to study in the Pacific Region.

I interact with schools, students and parents to accommodate the best relationship and communication between everyone. I am fluent in German and English, have children of my own, who just like I have done travel far and wide, so I know what is important for young adults traveling abroad. I look forward to meeting you!

Klaus Regnault

Mental Coach
Complex Coaching and Consulting

Based in Tauranga, New Zealand, I also have work contracts in Europe with various tennis academies as well as coaching individuals to help them enhance their performance within their field of expertise.

For StudyNZ I join the camps to facilitate the transition of students from their home country into the new life experience within a different culture and living environment that can be quite different from their family life at home.

I also make myself available on a one on one basis to coach students on different issues as the need arises if contracted to do so by the parents. This could be a variety of themes from career choices in the future to adaptation issues while away from home.

I look forward to meeting you! Klaus

Lena Doerner

I am part of the team currently stationed in Basel Switzerland. I grew up in New Zealand and had 2 years in Germany after finishing school to find out what life in Europe is like before starting my studies. After a year in sales and marketing as a team member of StudyNZ in Tauranga, I am now based in Basel and work as an early childhood teacher as well as looking after my young family.

During my college years I did a lot of camp leading for youth riding camps, and during my voluntary social year I worked with the Cologne Cathedral’s youth choir. Thus I bring a lot of experience in working with children and young people to the job, and know what young adults are looking for when planning a trip overseas, which allows me to help each of our students to find exactly what they’re looking for.

I am always willing to talk to students or parents if questions arise regarding their choice of school, or the NZ examination and qualification systems. I can be reached via email at all times, and am happy to have a face-to-face with you via skype with prior notice.

Isabel Schrader

My name is Isabel Schrader and I live in Meerbusch, near Düsseldorf. We got to know StudyNZ as parents in 2009, when our youngest son, Kristopher, spent the first half of his 11th school year in New Zealand, attending a college there and playing field hockey. He just loved it! When his stay overseas drew to a close, I saw this as an opportunity to travel to Tauranga to “pick Kristopher up”. After three weeks filled with wonderful impressions, I returned home as a true “Kiwi” with my son in tow.

Having studied hotel management, I speak three foreign languages – English, French and Italian. During our kids’ school years, I sat on the school board of our college for several years and participated in our school’s organisational activities. Thus I had a chance to have insights into German school administration and activities from several perspectives.

I look forward to providing advice wherever possible, and working with students and parents who are interested in studying in New Zealand to make this transition as easy as possible.

Anita von Wachold

Hello, my name is Anita von Wachold, I am from Chile and I used to live  close to  Santiago. I am very happy to be a part of Study NZ staff where I can assist families who wanted their children to have a safe overseas experience. Now in 2022 I am living in Vale d’Elqui since due to the border closure of NZ there was no work possible.

I enjoy working with StudyNZ a lot and am still available to assist you and your family with applications through StudyNZ.

I certainly recommend the agency to you!
