What made you choose to study here?

Aidan Sarikaya was offered the Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship which was a big drawcard to come to Waikato but there was also another pull - a strong hockey hub. Aidan is a professional hockey player and Commondwealth Games silver medallist.

He juggles his study and training by setting aside time each day to re-watch lectures that he missed and to take time to study for tests and complete assignments.

He enjoyed moving to Waikato to meet a range of people, "There are opportunities to meet people from all different walks of life, studying different things and competing or performing at the highest level."
