Students entering New Zealand for further higher studies can now apply for the AUT-NCUK Excellence Scholarship arranged by Auckland University of Technology. The awards are open for international students entering the university for any undergraduate level or above. Auckland University of Technology will offer six scholarships to support talented aspirants at the campus. The award amount will be significant enough in covering up various educational expenses required to complete their degrees.

Auckland University of Technology (AUT) is a university in New Zealand, formed on 1 January 2000 when a former technical college was granted university status.
