KUCHING: Vivienne Kingsbury from the University of Waikato of New Zealand will be here today to conduct professional and free student counselling cum interview session at the NZ Centre here, between 2pm and 5pm.

The University of Waikato is "New Zealand's University for the 21st Century", according to Kingsbury.

It offers high quality education to students of all nationalities with internationally recognised undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications and an emphasis on interdisciplinary programmes and specialised research.

The University of Waikato offers qualifications, which are flexible in structure, and as such, students are able to combine major and supporting subjects according to their individual interests and abilities, while ensuring that their programmes are coherent and provide a sound basis for employment of further study.

With 16 undergraduate degrees, 70 majors and programmes and more than 3,000 papers, the University of Waikato offers a wide range of special study choices.

Many of the degrees offer real-life work experience, underpinned by a strong theoretical base.

Waikato graduates are found in wide and varied positions, in companies and organisations of all shapes and sizes.

The university with over 1,600 staff members, occupies a 68-hectare park-like campus approximately three kilometres from the Central Business District of Hamilton city.

The University of Waikato is located in Hamilton, which is about 1.5 km drive south of Auckland.

New Zealand's fourth largest city, Hamilton is a student/ university city with more than 25,000 people in tertiary study.

With over 120,000 residents, Hamilton has all the energy of a thriving urban centre, without the big city stress.

Hamilton boasts scenic views, numerous parks, restaurants and cafe, shopping malls and idyllic river walks. Hamilton is on the north island of New Zealand.

New Zealand has an international reputation as a provider of excellent education and quality lifestyle.

The university offers a safe and conducive learning environment, affordable fees and costs of living.

Students and parents are welcomed to come and meet the official from the University of Waikato at NZ Centre today.

The professional counselling is free of charge. This will be a great opportunity to talk face-to-face on a one-to-one basis and discuss with the counsellor about the exciting opportunities available in the university.

Students are encouraged to bring their certificates/result for assessment and for application.

At the same time today, Jennifer Wilson of the Lincoln University will also be present at the NZ Centre to conduct student counselling session.

The NZ Centre has recently been established here as an official representative for all New Zealand Universities.
