Bachelor of Music (BMus) (Peformance)
Lauren has been completely amazed at the performance opportunities she's had while studying at Waikato University.
"We've travelled to other towns to perform and we've had master classes from some of the world's top musicians - for free," she says.
Lauren chose her course because music is her passion and she can't imagine doing anything else for her career. She plans to complete her honours at Waikato and then move overseas for further study. Then she'll be looking for an orchestra to join where she can play the flute.
The aspects Lauren likes most about Waikato is the fact she knows her lecturers personally, the student union which offers all types of support and the beautiful campus.
She advises anyone coming to Waikato to stay in the Halls of Residence. "The halls are an amazing way to meet new friends that will stay with you for life and it makes it easier to adapt to university life."
