Scholarships for International Students

The University of Waikato offers several scholarships and bursaries for international students.  Some require an application while others are applied automatically. This page lists the scholarships and bursaries that are available to international students - as well as regulations, conditions and application procedures.


Please note: As you may be aware, the New Zealand borders have been temporarily closed to non-residents and citizens. While these closures are in place, the new-international student bursaries and scholarships listed below will not be offered.

  • Master of Engineering Practice
  • Master of Applied Finance
  • International Bursary for Vietnamese Students
  • Waikato Pathways College International High Achiever Progression Bursary
  • University of Waikato International Excellence Scholarship

New international students are, instead, eligible for the 20% online bursary (offshore students), 20% onshore bursary or Tauranga Campus Bursary.


If you have any further questions, contact the Scholarships Office or the International Office. Application information is on each individual scholarship.
