AustraLearn - University of Waikato
Hamilton is the largest city in the central area of the North Island and New Zealand’s fourth largest city with about 130,000 people. Scenic river walks, numerous parks and gardens, and a growing café and restaurant culture enable students to enjoy a relaxed yet cosmopolitan environment. Its central location also offers convenient access to Auckland, mountains and whitewater rapids, ocean beaches, and many of New Zealand’s Maori cultural centers.
The University of Waikato has about 12,000 students, including 2200 international students. It offers a wide choice of undergraduate and postgraduate courses across numerous academic disciplines while retaining the feel of a smaller university environment. The name “Waikato” is a Maori word, meaning “running water,” and is the name of both the local province, and the river running through Hamilton. The Maori character of the campus is an important aspect of the University of Waikato’s identity.
