Scholarships in New Zealand for Singaporean Students

What better to pair New Zealand’s quality higher education system and glorious scenery than with a scholarship?

For Singaporean students looking to apply for undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships to study in New Zealand, universities do offer scholarship opportunities. On the other hand, the New Zealand government do offer scholarships as well but only to eligible citizens of developing countries, of which Singapore is not included in the list.

However, the government does fund professionals from eligible ASEAN countries, including Singapore, to partake in short courses that will equip them with new skills. Scholars will bring back with them skills ranging from public sector leadership and renewable energy, to even geothermal energy.

Indeed, New Zealand has become a popular study destination for international students, in part due to its array of unique courses available such as the Bachelor of Viticulture and Oenology as well as Bachelor of Forestry Science.

Other key factors that international students consider include the world-class standards and affordability of universities in New Zealand.
