          • Testimony
            2004-2005, Distinguished in every aspect

            Waikato made all the difference to my life. I changed the way I make decisions at work and in my personal life. My learning was genuinely research based, so I could relate to real life. I learnt how to see the big picture, break it down to its constituents, and assess the weight, value, and impact of each constituent, and how all work separately and conjunction with each other. In the course of my study, I received all the support needed to achieve my learning goals. My support went even beyond my study years to reach me while working overseas. Most important of all, I have learnt how to lead myself before leading others.

          • Testimony
            1992-2002, It was a pleasure

            I attended as a (very) mature student and felt very welcome. I felt I belonged, and loved the campus, the facilities, the staff, the learning. The qualification stood me in good stead and was a springboard to further learning opportunities

            1989-1992, Get a Solid Foundation in Your Study at University of Waikato

            My degree at University of Waikato gave me an excellent background in literature, research and communicating ideas effectively. I was able to use those skills during my time working in libraries, later when I studied to become a primary teacher, and then started teaching, and now as a writer. Recently I had a meeting with a member of academic staff to discuss future study options, and I was very impressed with the way he took the time to meet with me, carefully worked through course options, and then helped me map out the best plan of attack. The university has a campus based in Tauranga now, so it makes it so much easier to study for students on this side of the Kaimais. There's also online, and the option of travelling over to Hamilton for courses not offered in Tauranga.
