University of Otago International Master’s Research Scholarship


The University of Otago International Research Master’s Scholarship provides funding to support international Master’s students studying at the University of Otago.

Applicants must be:

  • obtaining their first Master’s qualification
  • international students
  • undertaking a thesis-based Master’s

Selection is based predominantly on academic merit and the applicant’s potential for research.

Please note this Scholarship will only provide support for the thesis component of a Master’s Research degree for up to 1 year full-time enrolment. It also only partially covers the cost of your tuition fees. As an international student you will be charged a higher level of tuition fees than a New Zealand domestic student. The Scholarship covers tuition fees for your thesis only at the domestic fee rate, i.e. the cost a New Zealand student would pay for their fees. This will be significantly less than the overall cost of your tuition fees and you will need to pay the difference between the two rates yourself. Please check with our International Office for tuition fee rates.
