Who is an International Diploma for?

These programmes have been created for students who haven't met the Academic or English entry requirements for degree-level study, and who would prefer additional support at the beginning of their study abroad experience.

International Diplomas combine the first year of a bachelor degree with Academic and English language support. Once you successfully complete your programme, you can progress to the second year of your chosen undergraduate degree.

I chose the University of Waikato because here I found high quality education in a campus surrounded by nature. I enjoy studying my Computer Science degree, we learn about software and networks in well-equipped labs. I would recommend to other international students to come to study at the University of Waikato, it’s a beautiful place.
