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

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.

The Eligibility questionnaire will check in detail if you meet all of the eligibility criteria. The Eligibility questionnaire will check things such as;

#1 Age Requirement:

To apply for a full New Zealand Scholarship, you must be 18 years old or older when you start your scholarship. This means if you are 17 years of age when you apply, you must have your 18th birthday before you start your scholarship in semester one.

There is no upper age limit for applicants. This means if you are 18 and over, you can apply. However, we do prefer applicants who are under 40 years of age for New Zealand Scholarships for university or tertiary students.

#2 Academic Requirement:

Successful scholarship applicants must meet both the academic entry requirements and the English language requirements determined by each educational institution. Check you meet academic entry requirements and English language requirements

As part of the New Zealand Scholarships application process, you need to choose your preferred education institution and preferred courses. Scholarship applicants don’t need to apply for admission to their preferred education institutions and courses.

But scholarship applicants do need to check that they are likely to meet the minimum academic requirements and the minimum level of English required for their courses.

Course entry requirements are set by your chosen education institution so you must check the minimum entry requirements on their website before you apply for a New Zealand Scholarship.

Ph.D. applicants should look for a supervisor as soon as possible

From an early stage, Ph.D. scholarship applicants should look for an email suitable Ph.D. supervisors at New Zealand universities. Ph.D. scholarship applicants who make it to the interview stage will need to provide evidence at the interview that they have either secured a supervisor or are in active discussions with a potential supervisor.

#3 English Language Requirement:

You do not need to sit an English language test or provide English language test scores when you apply for a New Zealand Scholarship. If they select you for the applicant shortlist during our scholarship selection process, then you will need to provide your English language test scores.

New Zealand Government Scholarship Council accepts test scores from these four English competency testing systems:

      1. IELTS (the International English Language Testing System) OR
      2. TOEFL (the Test of English as a Foreign Language) OR
      3. PTE Academic (the Pearson Test of English Academic) OR
      4. Cambridge Academic English (advanced).

If you have passed an IELTS, TOEFL, PTE Academic, or Cambridge Academic English (advanced) test to the required level during the last 12 months, then your university or education institution may accept these test scores.

If you do not have IELTS, TOEFL, PTE Academic, or Cambridge Academic English (advanced) test scores from the last 12 months, we will tell applicants on the shortlist, if and when they need to sit one of these English competency tests.

Exemption from English language test requirement: If you have already completed some of your previous qualifications in English, your preferred education institution may not require any IELTS, TOEFL, PTE Academic, or Cambridge Academic English (advanced) scores from you. This is the decision of your preferred university or education institution only. You should contact your preferred education institution for a final decision about whether you need to provide English test results.

Generally, to study for a postgraduate qualification, you must have at least:

    • an overall IELTS score of 6.5 and no band less than 6.0
    • a TOEFL score of 90 on the internet-based test with a writing score of 21

      1. Applicants who are in their final year of Secondary School, OR
      2. Applicants who are in their first year of tertiary study that was started in the academic year immediately after completing Secondary School.

New Zealand Government Scholarship Council Sponsors your English Language Test Fee

English language testing takes place during the final stages of our scholarship selection process. Only applicants on our scholarship shortlist, need current IELTS, TOEFL, PTE Academic, or Cambridge Academic English (advanced) test scores.

In most cases, shortlisted applicants will need to organize and pay for their own IELTS, TOEFL, or PTE Academic tests. Shortlisted applicants will need to book a test with a company that does English language testing close to their location.

If you are on our applicants’ shortlist, you will need to book your IELTS or TOEFL testing as soon as possible. This is because the testing process can take several weeks.

You may lose the chance to get a New Zealand Scholarship if your English language testing application form is late or incomplete or inaccurate. They will organize and pay for the IELTS test for shortlisted applicants from these countries:

For this reason, we strongly recommend that you look for an email suitable for Ph.D. supervisors as soon as possible.

How to Apply for a New Zealand Student VISA in 2024?

You only need to apply for a student visa, if we offer you a New Zealand Scholarship 2024-2025 and you accept that offer. But before you apply for a New Zealand Scholarship, we strongly recommend that you check the student visa requirements on the relevant immigration website, listed below. This is because you can only study abroad on a New Zealand scholarship if you successfully get a student visa to study in New Zealand.

As soon as a scholar accepts a New Zealand Scholarship, they must apply for a student visa on the relevant immigration website below. Once you accept the New Zealand Scholarship we recommend you start your visa application immediately. The visa application process can take two to three months and it involves medical tests.

If a scholarship recipient does not get a student visa, we will have to withdraw the scholarship.

New Zealand Study VISA Requirements in 2024:

If your scholarship application is for study in New Zealand, then you must meet these visa requirements:

Most scholars have to pay for the cost of a visa application and any medical tests before they come to New Zealand. When you arrive in New Zealand, your chosen university or education institution will pay you back for the cost of a visa, and any medical tests. Please keep all payment receipts, as you will need to show these to your university or education institution to get your money back.

Exception for some Pacific countries:

In some Pacific countries, your local New Zealand High Commission will pay for the cost of your visa application and any medical tests.
