The University of Waikato focuses on the quality of our teaching and the learner experience; with smaller class sizes, students receive greater flexibility and support from their lecturers.

We foster a collaborative environment through our workshops and tutorials as part of the learning process, and the engagement of students on campus in vibrant learning environments is a key aspect of our learning experience.

Our flexible degree structures mean our students can study a broad range of subjects to shape a qualification that matches their strengths and career interests.

We make sure all of our students are industry-eady through our Work Integrated Learning module. This hands-on experience with potential future employers ensures our students stand out to future employers.
