Student Exchange Programme
Thinking about an OE? Realise your dream by signing up for our international exchange programme and combine travel with study at an overseas university.
Waikato Management School is committed to ensuring that our graduates are prepared for a global business career.
We strongly encourage students to add international experience to your degree and enhance your employment prospects by participating in our international exchange programme.
Study destinations include the United States, Canada, China, the UK, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mexico.
Going on a student exchange is fun, adventurous and challenging. Exchanges are available for one or two semesters at any of our partner universities. They are open to all students who have completed at least one year of study and obtained a B grade average or better.
Our exchange programme provides you with an enormously valuable opportunity:
- Gain a worldwide perspective in your major subject/s
- Create an international resume/CV
- Explore new places and cultures, learn a new language
- Create a network of international contacts
By combining your OE with academic study, you will expand your career opportunities overseas. The experiences of daily life in another country will help you to understand the changing world around you. Read our stories about WMS students who've studied abroad.
