Enhance your employment prospects and make your CV stand out by participating in the a Waikato OE Programme - it could make all the difference.

Student Exchange

While there is generally flexibilty within the Bachelor of Health, Sport and Human Performance, if you are completing a double major you will need to map your degree programme more intricately in order to get the best fit for an overseas exchange.

There is less flexibility within the Bachelor of Health, so make sure you speak with one of the academic advisors below to ensure an overseas exchange will fit within your programme requirements.

Note: there are no extra requirements for Health students to be eligibile, just the standard Waikato OE critera.

Global Internships

Our partners CRCC Asia and Intern Group have internship opportunities in a wide variety of sectors and are in English.  The programmes range from 1-3 months and are located in cities such as Tokyo, Shanghai, London, Barcelona, New York and more.

There is a cost for these internships, however Waikato students receive a partnership discount and are considered for the Waikato OE Travel Award.

Explore global internships.

While our global internships are currently non-credit bearing, students are encouraged to speak to their School directly if they want to arrange credit for their WIL paper.

Hunter Jamieson
Bachelor of Health, Sport and Human Performance, major in Sport Development & Coaching
Rowan University, United States of America

"I was offered the opportunity to go to Rowan to play Rugby, which is what drew my attention to go there. I had always wanted to go on an OE, because it was an opportunity to study and experience a new culture, and given that this was my last semester I was never going to get another opportunity like this again. Furthermore, the location of the University was really appealing, as it was 20 minutes from Philadelphia, and 2 hours from New York.

My exchange to Rowan University provided me with many opportunities that I would not have had in New Zealand. It offered me the chance to see exciting places, meet new friends and be independent and challenge myself. I loved every minute of my adventure, and it’s given me the desire to travel in the future".
