Congratulations to the University of Waikato's class of 2014!
It's a special time to graduate this year as we celebrate a significant milestone - 50 years of academic excellence. We are extremely proud of all of our graduates, and wish you well as you embark on this next big stage of your life.
When you graduate from the University of Waikato, you join a worldwide group of special people: Waikato alumni. Waikato alumni do amazing things: they are corporate executives, agents of innovation and change, entertainers, teachers, artists, lawyers, government officials, filmmakers, authors...and so much more. We look forward to hearing of your successes in the years to come.
As a Waikato graduate, you can connect with us and your fellow alumni online. Make sure you like us on Facebook, and check out our Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn pages.
You can follow University and alumni news, events and information on our website too. Here you can update your details to receive:
- Regular Alumni and Friends E-Newsletters
- The annual alumni magazine Off Campus
- Invitations to alumni networking events in your region
You may have finished your studies, but as a graduate you can still make use of the services the University offers. You may be contemplating your career options or planning a big move away from home or abroad - and there are many helpful free resources available to help you on your way.
Visit the University's Career Development Services website for information on:
- Graduate job vacancies
- CV and covering letter advice
- Interview preparation
- Career skills workshops
If you're moving or travelling abroad, our Alumni Representatives are great ports of call when you arrive in a new city. These volunteers are based in cities around the world and are helpful contacts for providing advice and networking opportunities. We're always looking for new representatives to join our network, so if you're interested, make sure you get in touch with us to get the ball rolling.
It might also interest you to know you are part of a wonderfully diverse range of alumni achieving at all heights in their careers. Here are just a few:
