Doctoral scholarships and support funding

University of Auckland Doctoral Scholarships are a generous postgraduate scholarship – paying your fees and providing a stipend (living allowance) of $27,300 per annum for three years of full-time
doctoral study, which may be extended by a further six months (on application).

Doctoral scholarships are awarded to both domestic and international students. There are no application forms or closing dates: you apply for your programme and the scholarship is assessed at the same time.
Scholarship offers are made alongside offers of places in doctoral programmes. Under a New Zealand Government scheme, new international PhD students who reside in New Zealand during their doctoral study will pay the same annual tuition fees as New Zealand students (NZ$6,833; US$4,727 per annum in 2017). Including compulsory health insurance for international students (NZ$589) and the Student Services fee (NZ$766) the total fee in 2017 was NZ$8,188 (US$5,665 per annum).

Employment during study

Advanced postgraduate students are often employed as tutors, laboratory demonstrators or teaching assistants for undergraduate courses. Tutoring is a great way to gain valuable professional and teaching experience during your masters or PhD study.
Other opportunities include part-time research assisting, administrative duties or library work. There may be limits on allowable work hours (particularly for scholarship and international students), so you need to check any conditions that may apply. If you are working outside of the University to finance your study, it’s important that you discuss your work commitments with your department’s postgraduate adviser or your supervisor to ensure you can balance your workload realistically.
