university of cantebury

The University of Canterbury offers the UC Undergraduate Entrance Scholarship to high-achieving undergraduate international students.

These scholarships were established in 2011 by the University of Canterbury to recognise and support top achieving students commencing an undergraduate degree programme at the University of Canterbury.

The UC Entrance Scholarship shall be awarded to students who intend to begin their first year of an undergraduate degree programme at the University of Canterbury and who have completed or are completing a university entrance qualification.

UC Undergraduate Entrance Scholarships

Course(s) Offered: Any field
Course Level: Undergraduate
Provider: University of Canterbury
Country to Study in: New Zealand

To be eligible, the following must be met:

  • The scholarships will be awarded to students who are beginning their first year of an undergraduate degree programme at the University of Canterbury and who have completed university entrance qualification at a New Zealand school.
    International students are also eligible, but must have sat for an entrance qualification (e.g. NCEA) in NZ or sat for CIE or IB either in NZ or overseas.
    The scholarships are available only to students whose first year of study in an undergraduate degree programme is no more than one calendar year after they have completed their study for a university entrance qualification.
  • Recipients may commence study in either Semester 1 or Semester 2, and must be enrolled full time in their first year of study in an undergraduate degree programme.
    (“Full time” is here defined as 0.8 EFTS or more for whole-year study, and the equivalent if enrolling for the first time for study commencing in Semester 2.)
  • Each scholarship will be tenable for one year.
  • The scholarships will be awarded to students who have gained the academic qualifications listed in the appendix, and who have gained university entrance.
    Students completing university entrance requirements in New Zealand via other pathways will also be eligible for consideration, and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Eligible groups
Citizens of ANY country
(BUT you must have sat your entrance qualification (e.g. NCEA) in NZ or you sat CIE or IB either in NZ or overseas.)

Participating Institutions
University of Canterbury; New Zealand

Fields of study
All available undergraduate courses at the University of Canterbury

Number of awards
Not specified by the sponsor

Sponsorship duration
The tenure of this award is 1 year. Continuation of a scholarship is conditional on satisfactory academic progress and adherence to the University’s statutes and regulations.

In the event of a recipient’s withdrawal from full-time study in an undergraduate degree programme, the scholarship will be withdrawn, and any paid funds may be recovered.

Scholarship benefits
Amount is up to $3,000 (between $1000 and $3000 for your first year at UC). It is a cash scholarship, so you can choose to use the money as you wish.

Method of Application
You do not need to apply for this scholarship. An approved Application to Enrol is considered your application for the UC Undergraduate Entrance scholarship. To apply to enroll, visit this page.

It is important to visit the official website (via link below) to read through the UC Undergraduate Frequently Asked Questions and also for complete details on how to apply.

There is NO closing date as a scholarship application is NOT required. Apply to Enrol at UC, and if approved, that enrollment application will be taken as your scholarship application. However, to be eligible for it, all undergraduate students must enroll by 10 December for Semester One or 2 July for Semester Two; but, there is no scholarship application deadline.

Recipients must be studying full time. You could also be eligible for one or more of UC’s other undergraduate scholarships. Please visit the official website for more information.

The University of Canterbury in Christchurch is New Zealand’s second oldest university. It was founded in 1873 as Canterbury College, the first constituent college of the University of New Zealand. Its original campus was in the central city, but in 1961 when it became an independent university it also began moving out of its original neo-gothic buildings, which were re-purposed as the Christchurch Arts Centre.

Application Deadline: Rolling (BUT enroll by 10 Dec 2016 || 2 Jul 2017)
Open to International Students: Yes
