New York Institute of Photography Announces Better Foreign Shipping for International Students

on Tuesday, 04 September 2012.

Last week, the New York Institute of Photography announced a brand new plan for shipping course materials to the thousands of international students that enroll there to learn photography every year.

As the world's oldest and largest photography school, the New York Institute of Photography has long attracted students from across the globe. With their convenient home-study photography programs, students from anywhere in the world have access to the same courses.

Up until now, all shipping outside of the United States and Canada relied heavily on local postal systems and customs offices. But starting this week, all international students will start receiving their shipments via Fedex. This means course materials will be delivered faster and more securely in many countries throughout the world, and students and staff at NYIP will both have more visibility into shipment tracking.

"This is a long overdue improvement for our foreign students," said Chuck DeLaney, Director of NYIP. "We are enrolling people all over the world at a faster rate than ever before, and they deserve the same great service and education that we provide to students in the United States. And we were able to do it all without raising shipping costs for anyone."

The new foreign shipping plan is included on all new student enrollments outside of the United States and Canada. In addition, any existing students who are scheduled to receive shipments will be added to the Fedex program this week.
