University of Waikato

The University of Waikato (Māori: Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato), informally Waikato University, is a comprehensive university in Hamilton, New Zealand, with a satellite campus located in Tauranga. Established in 1964, it was the first university in New Zealand to be designed from a blank canvas.

We are committed to providing our students with world-class, research-driven teaching, in a dynamic learning environment with excellent facilities. The quality of our staff, their teaching and their research are manifest across all disciplines. We have achieved major successes in New Zealand''s Tertiary Teaching Excellence Awards. And in the first national evaluation of university research quality (PBRF), Waikato had 28 subjects assessed and was ranked first or first equal in seven of them (25%). These are:

* Accounting and Finance
* Chemistry
* Communications, Journalism and Media Studies
