Prior to coming to Waikato, Megan was running her own business as a Career Consultant. She was also President of the Career Development Association of New Zealand (CDANZ). It was the frequent policy focus of this role, along with a career spent in the public sector, that led her to want to study public policy.

“It was an area which I wanted to specialise in and to build onto my existing career interest and experience.”

For Megan, Waikato was the obvious choice as it was right on her doorstep. “I have previously undertaken extramural study and have found there is a lot of value in being able to attend classes in person.  By attending Waikato, I have been able to develop valuable networks, engage with the material more readily through discussion, and take up many opportunities.  Waikato also has a beautiful campus and a great student centre.”

“Waikato has offered me endless opportunities.”
