Postgraduate Students

Otago has announced a new scholarship for 2024 – the NZD $10,000 Vice-Chancellor’s International Postgraduate Scholarship. This scholarship is for international students studying full-time coursework master’s degrees or postgraduate diplomas, either on campus or by distance learning, in 2024.

The scholarships are unlimited in number but are merit based. To be considered, students require a grade average of at least a B+ in their previous academic studies. A scholarship application is not required; students will be assessed for a scholarship at the same time as being assessed for a place on their chosen programme, and advised whether they have been awarded a scholarship when they receive an offer of place from Otago.

Scholarship closing dates are 15 November 2023 for students wishing to start in Semester 1 (February) 2024, and 30 April 2024 for students wanting to start in Semester 2 (July) 2024.
