Secondary school students from around the Bay of Plenty enjoyed a busy day at the Windermere Campus Open Day in Tauranga. The Open Day was a chance for students to get a taste of campus life and meet University and Bay of Plenty Polytechnic staff.
Students attended information sessions throughout the day to find out about the programmes available through the Bay of Plenty Tertiary Education Partnership. In Tauranga the University of Waikato offers a range of study options including teaching, social sciences, social work, computer science, biological science, business, management, tourism and law.
The University and Polytechnic have been working together for more than a decade to increase tertiary education opportunities in the Bay of Plenty and now offer a growing range of jointly developed diploma and degree programmes. The University shares the Polytechnic’s two Tauranga campuses at Windermere and the Bongard Centre in the CBD.
