Waikato Pathways College
We understand that parents will have many concerns and expectations when their child leaves to study in another country. The University of Waikato has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students published by the Ministry of Education. It is our aim to offer all areas of support to ensure our international students enjoy a positive, safe and memorable experience while they study with us.
We provide a range of study and student services to help our students wherever we can.
During orientation students will be given essential information to ensure their stay in New Zealand is safe, enjoyable and academically successful. We also have a guide with useful information your daughter or son needs to know before coming to New Zealand.
