Students who have completed a New Zealand secondary school qualification, but do not initially meet the entry requirements for their preferred undergraduate degree at a New Zealand university, are able to apply for the Certificate of University Preparation (CUP).
Students who enter the CUP programme will study at the Waikato Pathways College for the duration of one semester and learn the tools and skills they need to transition to the University of Waikato, or any other university in New Zealand. CUP students have full access to all the facilities and services at the University of Waikato during their studies.
