With a diverse student population – we have students representing more than 85 different nationalities – the University offers a welcoming and vibrant garden campus environment where students are encouraged to study and play.  This diversity spills into our classrooms, adding an extra dimension to learning through working with people of different cultures and backgrounds.

Academic staff at Waikato are passionate about their areas of expertise and are committed to helping their students build the skills and knowledge required to be successful in their careers. Inside and out of the classroom, you will be encouraged to engage with your lecturers, to ask questions and generate debate.

Beyond academic life, the University has an enthusiastic and energetic international student support team who are dedicated to helping international students with life outside the classroom including medical insurance, visa renewals as well as organising social events to connect you with other students and the wider community. 

For high achieving international students, the University offers an International Excellence Scholarship, up to NZ$10,000.  For more information click here.

The University offers two study locations to choose from. The main campus is located in Hamilton City, a vibrant and multicultural city with a campus that stretches across 64 hectares of park like grounds . As the University of Waikato continues to grow, it has expanded its teaching and research activity to the Bay of Plenty region, by opening a new campus in Tauranga’s CBD in February 2019.
