High achieving students from China are encouraged to study for their PhD at Auckland University of Technology (AUT) through a collaborative agreement with China Scholarship Council (CSC).
The programme aims to encourage research co-operation between AUT and Chinese universities. Students who receive a scholarship are provided with a living allowance as prescribed by the Chinese government for the term of the scholarship, return airfare to New Zealand by the most economical route, student visa fees, and the cost of health insurance for international students.
These scholarships are available for the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme only and are available for up to four years.

If AUT determines you are a suitable candidate, we will assist with finding a supervisor. You may have already made contact with an AUT academic prepared to be your supervisor, if this is the case then advise the Graduate Research School of this.
Successful recipients of a CSC scholarship will be notified by CSC from May 2024.
