In 1921, Daniel Vickery Bryant formed the D.V. Bryant Trust with the intention of focusing its philanthropic and practical efforts on the Waikato region. When the D.V. Bryant Trust erected Bryant Hall on land leased from the University of Waikato in 1971, it began to create close ties with the university. These links continue to this day.
About the Scholarship:
Higher education and academic research are two of the primary focuses of the University of Waikato, which is a public institution located in New Zealand. 1964 was the year that it began operations. In 1956, as a result of the victory of a petition, the institution was initially established as the Hamilton Teachers’ College; in 1964, it was promoted to the status of university. Some of the organizations with which this educational establishment is affiliated include the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning (ASAIHL), the EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), and the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
The principal site of the educational institution can be found in Hamilton, and it extends across a total of 158 acres of property in the city. There are many different types of buildings on campus, including as administrative offices, classrooms, labs, libraries, residence halls, and recreational facilities. Additionally, it owns a second campus that is situated in Tauranga and may be found there. The library complex of the university is spread across all three campuses and is comprised of the libraries that are located on each individual campus. The roughly one million print volumes and approximately 275,000 electronic materials that are housed within these libraries serve as a resource for learning, investigation, and the instruction of others. The additional facilities that are located on each of the campuses include things like a gymnasium, a medical facility, sporting grounds, a student center, and swimming pools. There is also a dairy on each of the campuses.
On the Hamilton campus, there are four residence halls, and students have the option of either making their own meals or receiving full board. Those who opt for self-catering will not have access to the kitchen. On the other hand, the university oversees the maintenance of two separate residential complexes in the city of Tauranga. Mayfair Court Apartments and Durham Mews Apartments are the names of these two separate apartment complexes. The visitors of these housing units have access to a wide variety of services, including televisions, free Internet connectivity, entertainment centers, game rooms, computer rooms, paid parking, and laundry facilities. The university’s shuttle service is available to both students and staff members, and both groups are welcome to use it. On campus, some of the additional modes of mobility that are used include public transportation, private vehicles, bicycles, and pedal-powered automobiles.
The university is comprised of seven faculties, one school, and one college, all of which provide students with access to a wide variety of academic programs in the following subject areas: the arts, the social sciences, mathematics, education, health, business, language and mass communication, engineering, and management. Instruction is provided in 135 distinct disciplines, some of which are: anthropology, psychology, applied linguistics, aquaculture, biotechnology, communication design, and data analytics, to name just a few. These academic relationships make it possible for students to participate in exchange programs that widen their perspectives and enrich their education. The university has academic partnerships with a wide variety of educational institutes and organizations situated all over the world. In addition to this, the institution maintains strong relationships with a large number of commercial enterprises. The educational establishment is currently home to roughly 12,642 students who are participating in a range of undergraduate, doctoral, and post-graduate degree programs. There are roughly 2,000 international students studying there, and they come from over 80 different countries all over the world.
There is a list of notable alumni who graduated from the University of Waikato and went on to become well-known leaders and award-winners in their respective fields after attending the university. These graduates are included on the list. The current Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, is also a graduate of the university, making her both an alumna of the university and an esteemed graduate of the institution. The businessman Mark Wilson, the former rugby player Wayne Smith, the physicist Peter David Drummond, the ice and inline hockey player Anjali Dayalji Thakker, and Mita Michael Ririnui (Politician), Helen Lowe (Novelist), Fiona Jackson (Filmmaker), Marama Mere-Ana Davidson (Politician), David Derek Sikua (Former Prime Minister of Solomon Islands), Nathan Cohen (New Zealand Rower), and Barbara Stewart are some of the notable New Zealanders who have been involved in politics.
