5 helpful steps to follow when you’re applying:
Step One: Research your options
Spend some time researching which destination and programme you want to go to.
Have a look at the courses they offer, the student life and the city to make sure it fits in with your qualification and lifestyle.
Step Two: Select your top 3 choices
Pick 3 partner universities/programmes that interest you the most. Make sure they work for you academically.
Please note you will be placed at any one of your 3 choices.
Step Three: Chat with a Waikato OE adviser
