The inspiring blend of heritage buildings, modern facilities and range of tertiary study programmes attracts highly motivated students and staff to UCOL from many parts of the world.
Whanganui iwi, Te Āti Haunui-a-Pāpārangi, gave the campus the name 'Matapihi ki te Ao', which means 'window of opportunity' to the world.
For many of our qualifications we partner with the local business community to provide students with work experience opportunities, which in turn helps local organisations meet their staffing needs, solve a problem or advance a project. The skills learnt during this creative and collaborative process help students hone their research abilities and apply theory to real-life challenges. Does this sound like you? If so, take a look at
