Scholarship student support

Received a school leaver scholarship to study at AUT? As a scholarship student you're encouraged to access the extensive programme of support at AUT throughout your degree.

How we support scholarship students

  • A special scholars’ welcome at Orientation
  • Professional development and networking opportunities throughout your studies
  • Social and charitable involvement in support of our AUT Scholars’ Society
  • One-on-one support when needed throughout your degree
  • Referring you to additional support if required
  • Making it easy for you to make friends while you live in AUT accommodation: all scholarship students live on the same floor
  • Providing information about other scholarship opportunities you may be eligible for

At the end of the year, we also hold an event to recognise our scholarship students who are graduating and celebrate their achievements.

One-on-one support and progress reports

We want to know how you're doing! We check in with you in your first semester and ask you to fill in an online progress report to make sure you're enjoying your studies and are making the most of your time at AUT.

This is also a chance to let us know if you need additional support for:

  • Academic progress
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Social interaction
  • Accommodation
  • Any other challenges you may be facing

AUT Scholars’ Society

The AUT Scholars' Society is the scholarship students' community at AUT and is an AUTSA student club. It provides current and former AUT scholarship students with the opportunity to connect with each other, and feel supported on their university journey through networking, academic and social events.
