Work with a Student or Graduate
Whether it's an internship, volunteering opportunity or graduate position, the University of Waikato can help you connect with our students and recent graduates to fulfil your staffing needs.
Work Integrated Learning
Work placements, internships, applied projects, summer research scholarships and more
Work-integrated learning (WIL) offers a win-win for everyone - students, business, iwi, community groups, schools and other organisations. Local business and other organisations can utilise students' knowledge and resource to complete projects while helping to develop future talent. For students, WIL provides an opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge in a practical setting.
WIL is a compulsory component of all University of Waikato’s undergraduate degrees. For more information, please visit the Work-integrated learning web page.
Employability Plus Programme
Student volunteers for community groups and not-for-profits organisations
Community and not-for-profit organisations can access student knowledge and resource for volunteer roles through the Employability Plus Programme (EPP).
Volunteer activities are a great way for students to develop the skills required by employers while helping local community groups.
