NEXT:  4. Research approved education institutions and their course catalogues

Scholars can study abroad in New Zealand at one of eight universities or three institutes of technology. Citizens from eligible Pacific countries can also choose from four Pacific universities.

Research approved education institutions and their course catalogues

Applicants should carefully research each approved education institution and their course catalogue.

You should research:

  1. an education institution that suits your academic and personal needs
  2. a qualification at the level of study available for your country
  3. a qualification that progresses on from your highest qualification

Subjects and qualifications we recommend for your country

Choose from these New Zealand education institutions

There are eleven approved education institutions that New Zealand Scholars can study at: eight universities and three institutes of technology.

Eight universities to choose from

QS World University Rankings ranks New Zealand universities in the top 3%. New Zealand universities rank in the world’s top 100 in over 30 subjects.

Three institutes of technology to choose from

New Zealand’s institutes of technology are also world class. They provide high-quality qualifications and training that focus on practical skills and hands-on experience.

Do more research on these New Zealand websites

These websites will also help you choose the best New Zealand education institution and courses for you:

NEXT: 5. How to apply for a New Zealand Scholarship

The New Zealand Scholarship application process differs depending on which country or region you are from. You can apply between the application opening and closing dates for your country.

Select your region to find the application process for your country

Application opening and closing dates for your country.

NEXT:  6. How we select scholars

Selecting New Zealand Scholars can take six to ten months from the time scholarship applications close. Applicants must check their email frequently for progress updates.

Scholarship selection process and typical dates

This page describes the selection process and gives indicative timeframes. How long the selection process takes, depends on the number of applicants we get for each country.

Applicants must check their email frequently for progress updates during the selection process.

  1. We screen applicants: We assess applicants against our eligibility criteria and our selection guidelines. We compare the preferred courses of each applicant with our recommended study subjects. This initial screening process takes place typically in March-April.
  2. We advise you of our decision: We email applicants to advise them if they will continue to the next selection stage or if their application has been unsuccessful. This typically takes place in April.

    Note for PhD applicants: We recommend you start contacting suitable PhD supervisors, if you have not already done this. Scholarship applicants may apply to undertake doctoral studies in any of the identified sectors. They must, however, be able to show that there are employment opportunities on their return that require them to undertake unsupervised post-doctoral research, or to teach at degree level. They must also be able to show how their proposed research proposal will benefit the country, and that they have approached the university to identify appropriate supervisors.
  3. We assess applications in more detail: We carry out a detailed assessment of the applications against our selection guidelines.
  4. You do psychometric testing: While applications are being assessed we mail applicants an email containing links to two psychometric tests: an abstract reasoning test and a personality test. Applicants must do these tests within 10 days of getting the email. If you do not receive an email with the links to the psychometric tests within 3 days of being advised that your application has moved through to the assessment/psychometric stage you must contact us immediately.

    Assessment and psychometric testing typically takes place in April/May
  5. We advise you of our decision: We email applicants to advise them if they will continue to the interview stage or English language testing, or if their application has been unsuccessful.
  6. Four countries have English language tests before interview: We organise and pay for applicants from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Timor-Leste to sit the English competency test in their own country. Only applicants, who pass the IELTS test, will continue to the interview stage.
    Exception for Indonesia and most Pacific countriesFor Indonesia and for most Pacific countries, we pay for IELTS testing, and if shortlisted, this occurs after the interview stage.
  7. You prove your English competency: All other applicants may provide evidence of a current IELTS or TOEFL test score at any time during selection. If an applicant has not passed an IELTS or TOEFL test to the required level within the last 12 months, they must sit an IELTS or TOEFL test at their own cost. This typically takes place in June/August.
  8. We interview applicants: Each applicant will be interviewed at the New Zealand Embassy or New Zealand High Commission, in the applicant’s own country, or by phone or online video conference (i.e. Skype). Interviews take place typically in May/July.

    How to prepare for your scholarship interview

    Note for PhD applicants: Prior to the interview, applicants must provide evidence that they have a PhD supervisor or are close to confirming a PhD supervisor.
  9. We advise you of our decision: We email applicants to advise them if they are a preferred candidate, or a candidate on the reserve list, or if their application has been unsuccessful.
  10. Preferred candidates apply for admission to their preferred courses and apply for a student visa

Guidelines we use to select applicants

We use these guidelines to select applicants with very good character, ethics and abilities.

In general, we want scholars with these attributes:

  • They have a strong academic ability.
  • They show commitment to the social and economic development of their country.
  • They are 39 years or younger when the scholarship starts.
  • They choose courses that align with our recommended subjects.
  • They want to encourage positive relations with New Zealand now and in the future.
  • They are seeking to undertake a qualification that progresses on from their highest qualification.

We also aim for a balanced mix of women and men scholars.

In general we do not support applicants who wish to do post-graduate qualifications which are not listed in the levels of study available for their country.

We select people with the following characteristics

Successful applicants must have a good education

Successful applicants must have high grades. They must have the right qualifications for entry into their preferred courses.

Successful applicants must study in a similar field they have already worked in

Successful applicants must have relevant work experience for their proposed field of study. (School leavers and first year undergraduate students do not need work experience.)

Successful applicants must want to study in a new country

Scholars will find cultural differences when they study abroad. Scholars must have life skills to support themselves away from home. We select applicants who are willing to study in a different country, and leave their family and their community.

Successful applicants choose courses that can help solve their country’s social and economic problems

We prefer applicants who choose to study one of our recommended subjects. We recommend subjects that can reduce social and economic development problems in each eligible country.

Scholars must use their skills to improve their country

Successful applicants must show motivation and commitment to share their skills and knowledge when they return home. After they finish their scholarship, scholars must return home and contribute to their own country’s social and economic development for two years.

Successful applicants must communicate well

We look for applicants who can communicate clearly, listen effectively, and answer questions appropriately.

Successful applicants are agile learners

Successful applicants have strong intellectual and reasoning skills. They can adapt to life away from their home. They have the skills to create a successful career.

Successful applicants manage relationships well

Successful applicants can create effective relationships with other students, academic staff and citizens in their own country.

Successful applicants have integrity

A person with integrity is honest and consistently makes ethical decisions. We want applicants who uphold good ethics and expect other people to do the same.

Successful applicants have good judgement

Successful applicants can assess a situation sensibly. They can make reasonable decisions.

Successful applicants are resilient

We look for applicants who can handle stress well. We look for applicants who can endure or recover quickly from difficult life events when their family is not in the same country.

Successful applicants can motivate themselves

We look for applicants who show ambition, a desire to achieve their goals and responsibility for getting things done. Scholars need a long-term vision for their study and career goals.

The selection process is very competitive

The New Zealand Scholarship process is very competitive. Every year we grant 560 full scholarships in total. Every year we receive over 11,000 applications.

Because we get a large number of applications, we can’t tell each applicant the specific reasons why they were unsuccessful. Please do NOT email us to ask why you were unsuccessful. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough human resources to answer these types of emails.

We know that the application process requires a lot of hard work. We thank all applicants for their interest in a New Zealand Scholarship.

You may have submitted a very good application. We may have to decline good applications, simply because other applicants submit better applications.

If you are unsuccessful, you may apply for a New Zealand Scholarship again next year.

Important: In the event we receive an overly large number of applications from one or more eligible countries, we reserve the right to use some form of random selection to manage application numbers from the relevant eligible country or countries.

Common reasons why we decline applications

Here are the most common reasons why we decline international scholarship applications.

From time to time the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade will review the New Zealand Scholarships Policy Handbooks. Changes made after review apply to all scholars, regardless of when they commence their scholarship.

Please note that the current New Zealand Scholarships Policy Handbook for study in New Zealand has been updated in January 2020. It will be the responsibility of all scholarship recipients to familiarise themselves with the updated New Zealand Scholarships Policy Handbook for study in New Zealand.

You must meet any prerequisite conditions of your scholarship

Getting your New Zealand Scholarship may be conditional. You may need to meet some conditions before you leave your home country, and/or as soon as you arrive at your study location. Your Scholarship Letter of Offer will tell you if your scholarship comes with prerequisite conditions. If you do not meet the prerequisite conditions, we have to withdraw the offer of a scholarship.

Here are two examples of prerequisite conditions:

You must apply for all visas

As soon as you accept your scholarship, you must apply for a student visa for New Zealand or your Pacific destination. The visa application takes two to three months, typically from September-November. This process involves medical tests.

You can bring family with you and they need a valid visa too

Financial support for scholars

With a full New Zealand Scholarship, scholars receive:

  • full tuition fees
  • living allowance (a stipend) of NZ$491 per week. This will help with a scholar’s basic living expenses, but it is not enough to cover the living costs of any family members
  • an establishment allowance of NZ$3000. This is to help with set-up costs in New Zealand. For example, you can use it for accommodation expenses, text books, or other study materials
  • medical insurance when you are in New Zealand
  • travel to and from your own country. This is for travel from your own country at the start of the scholarship, and for return travel at the end of your scholarship
  • travel insurance
  • travel home during your scholarship (We allow for one or two trips home, depending on the length of your scholarship)
  • help with research and thesis costs for many postgraduate students

Your education institution will organise your travel and look after you on arrival

The International Students Office at your university or education institution will organise travel to your study location and your accommodation. They will also look after you on arrival in your study location. They can answer any questions you may have about your courses, financial allowances or payments.

You attend a briefing before you leave home

If there is a New Zealand Embassy or High Commission in your country, they will give you a briefing before you leave your country. This briefing will take place at New Zealand Embassy or High Commission in your country.

If you cannot attend a briefing for whatever reason, you can download the briefing information [PDF, 16 MB]

Your study starts the year after you apply

Each year, we conduct one round of scholarship applications for each country.

If you are successful, you will start your study in semester one in February or March of the following year. (The exception is when your study programme is only available from semester two.) Check the website of your education institution for the exact start dates for your courses. You must be available to start your study on time.

The international student office at your preferred education institution will make sure you arrive at your study location before your courses start. You will have to time for orientation and to settle into your new accommodation.

You must complete your study on time

You must complete your study within the time period allocated by your education institution for your chosen academic programme.

All scholars must comply with these conditions

Scholars must meet all the conditions of a scholarship. Scholars could lose their academic scholarship if they fail to meet these conditions.

For example, all scholars must attend classes, complete compulsory assignments and sit all exams. All scholars must meet all the course requirements of their education institution on time. Your education institution offers extra academic and personal support if a scholar asks for it.

Conduct requirements of New Zealand Scholars

Scholars agree to maintain an acceptable standard of conduct while on scholarship, as specified by the Scholarship Conditions in the Letter of Scholarship Offer. The Conditions apply to the scholar from the date of departure from their home country for their country of study, until the date of arrival in their home country on completion of the scholarship.

Acceptable scholar conduct includes:

  • abiding by the laws of the study country
  • treating others with respect
  • behaving with honesty and integrity
  • acting in a manner that reflects your role as a representative of your home country

Scholars should be aware that it is a criminal offence to use violence of any kind against another person, which includes physical, sexual, or psychological violence against family members such as partners or children. It is also a crime to neglect or exploit children in your care, or to use physical discipline of any kind.

Academic requirements

Scholars agree to meet all of the academic requirements outlined in the Letter of Scholarship Offer and in the New Zealand Scholarships Policy Handbook. This includes attending all classes, completing all assessments that are compulsory course requirements, and sitting all exams. You are required to achieve satisfactory academic progress in accordance with the continuation criteria set by both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the academic institution.

Education institutions have duty to care for students

Your education institution must follow the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students (external link). This sets minimum standards to ensure international students in New Zealand are well informed, safe, and properly cared for by their education institution.
