English Language School in New Zealand


ebaaf130-2.jpg (10074 bytes)From modest beginnings on what was largely farmland, the University of Waikato has grown to a student population of about 13,000 of whom more than 4800 complete a qualification annually. Today the University employs 2000 academic and support staff, making a significant contribution to the local and national economy. Since the earliest days the University has worked closely with iwi, particularly Tainui, to make the University accessible to Maori students and to foster an environment of success. Now it is a truly New Zealand institution, supporting the country's nation-building policies and reflecting the nation's identity.

Foreign students are welcomed at University of Waikato. The team at Waikato International department can help these students to find the most suitable courses for their needs and interests, providing assitance with the initial application process and manages all of the ongoing international student support. Regarding ESL, there are several options for studying English language with the University of Waikato Pathways College. You can choose to study English in Hamilton or Tauranga.
