At Unitec, we have a range of industry partners and NZ government-funded scholarships for international students. Read about each one below and click through for more information.

Manaaki New Zealand scholarships

Manaaki New Zealand Scholarships are administered by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Manaaki New Zealand scholarships help build sustainable development in partner countries and a lifetime connection with New Zealand. The purpose of a Manaaki New Zealand scholarship is to fund the training of citizens from developing countries, so they can positively impact their country’s development by sharing new skills and knowledge gained from their studies. That is why it is expected that all scholars will return home after their scholarship for at least two years to contribute to the social and economic development of their home country.
