Courses offered in Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec), Hamilton, New Zealand
“I wasn’t sure about my career path when I finished school. After traveling and working in different jobs, I came across Wintec’s Bachelor of Business degree, and I got the feeling this is what I was looking for. Initially I was worried about how I would cope with the exams and assignments as I was working full-time and didn’t want to give up my job. Wintec proved to be the perfect place to study as an adult learner. The programmes were flexible and the tutors were very supportive. This degree has changed everything for me. Now I have a job as a Senior Tax Consultant at KPMG, Hamilton and I can picture a successful career ahead of me.”
“The reason I chose Wintec to pursue my Bachelor of Applied Social Sciences (Social Work) was because of its friendly environment, cooperative tutors and supportive student services. This programme has helped me reach the biggest milestone of my learning journey. The student placements have given me confidence to begin my career as a social worker. I am about to start my final student placement with Child, Youth and Family and hope to work as a registered social worker soon afterwards. I have received exceptional support from Wintec’s student learning and support services, particularly in regards to getting my visa. Wintec has felt like a second home in New Zealand for me.”
ASHKATI PURI (INDIA)
“The Bachelor of Information Technology has taught me a wide range of IT skills and given me great experience in and exposure to the industry. I experienced a stimulating environment filled with diverse cultures, and languages at Wintec. I felt amazed with Wintec’s supportive and patient student services and teaching approaches. I had a wonderful experience with my New Zealand homestay family and learnt a lot about New Zealand tradition and culture. Wintec motivated me by offering me the opportunity of working part-time within the student services team during my studies, and hired me full-time after I completed my degree.”
ZHENG LU (CHINA)
“I had an amazing experience studying at Wintec with such a diverse student culture and the opportunity to use the latest equipment. My school’s head of department in South Africa recommended I study Wintec’s Bachelor of Sports and Exercise Science. The practical component meant I got to work with real clients. I received the opportunity to work with local sports teams which included being involved in the Ethnic Football Tournament held in Hamilton. I found the student experience staff always friendly and supportive. The visa procedures workshops and general information sessions in particular were also very helpful. I am now running my own massage business and work as a self-defence consultant.”
