Student Exchange

How does the Waikato OE work?

Once you’ve spent two semesters studying with us and achieved at least a B-grade average, you’re eligible to apply for an exchange.

You can study overseas for one semester or a full year and the points you earn during this time will be transferred over to your Waikato qualification. The maximum number of points you can transfer is 60, which is equivalent to the standard semester workload.

Although most exchanges are for undergraduate students, some partner universities will accept postgraduate students taking taught papers. English is the language of instruction at most of our partner universities.

We have partner universities in more than 20 countries. So where in the world do you want to go? View out full list of exchange partners.
