Of all the universities in New Zealand to choose from, Hollie Keightly, who attended secondary school in Auckland, decided the University of Waikato was her best option.

For Hollie, the flexibility to combine her passion and interest through conjoint degrees in communication and health & sport was a key factor in her decision.

“My aim is to finish my conjoint degree then make my way overseas. I want to work in sports public relations and media, so my two degrees are the perfect foundation to help me follow my dreams. In the meantime, Hamilton is a great place to live.”

The idea of studying at a smaller university also appealed to her. “I like the study environment at Waikato. Everything is here on one campus; it’s easy to get around and it feels like a real community. There’s always something to get involved in and it’s easy to catch up with friends between classes.”

Hollie says the Hamilton campus is a beautiful space with lots of nature, excellent facilities and plenty of places to gather socially.
