Student tools

The University of Waikato provides a range of student tools to help you throughout your time here.


Moodle is the university's system for delivering online content for your papers. It’s where you submit assignments, access course materials and keep up-to-date with what’s happening with your course. You can access Moodle through the student homepage.

Lecturers and teaching staff will use Moodle to upload course materials, set assignments, upload quizzes and more.

It is important to become familiar with this tool as it is something that you will use most days.

For self-help tools, check out the Moodle guides for students.


MyWaikato is our mobile-friendly system for managing your enrolments, enquiries, timetable, final grades, research progress, graduation, academic record and more.

From MyWaikato you can:

  • Enrol to study, choose papers or change your enrolment
  • Apply for scholarships
  • View your university account balance and pay fees
  • View your timetable (lectures only)

MyWIL is the student tool used for our Work-Integrated Learning Papers. Every undergraduate degree now requires you to complete a work-integrated learning paper to help prepare you for the workforce.

The MyWIL portal provides you with easy access to information about your work-integrated learning paper. Through MyWIL you can apply for an advertised internship or report of an investigation project, submit a proposal for an internship or report of a project you’ve found yourself and view the status of your WIL activities.
