Why Waikato

Rankings and reputation

With our sixth consecutive climb in the QS World University Rankings, we are ranked 266= in the world. Our global reputation reflects the exceptional research of our talented academics and the impact it's having on our world now and in the future, locally and internationally.

Student support services

We have a number of support services available to our students, including study and learning support, career development services and health and wellbeing services.

Career support

At the University of Waikato we are committed to preparing our graduates to be ready for the workforce. Our work-integrated learning (WIL) papers create a link between academic learning and the practical applications of this learning in the workplace.

Waikato OE student exchange

This is your opportunity to travel overseas while completing your Waikato degree! Our exchange programme lets you earn the same points and pay the same fees as you normally would while studying at one of our partner universities around the world.

Student clubs and groups

There are a variety of student-run clubs and societies for you to join, ranging from academic and cultural clubs to sports and religion.


We now have two state-of-the-art campuses, one in Hamilton and our brand new Tauranga campus.
