Scholarship Offer for International Student

24 Oct Scholarship Offer for International Student

International student, Jacob (Yage) Hou has been offered not one, but two scholarships by the University of Canterbury. Jacob, who is considering Engineering as a career, came to New Zealand to study in July 2016. He is currently studying NCEA Level 3 Calculus, Statistics, Chemistry and Physics and is also entering scholarship exams this year.

Jacob was understandably excited when the University of Canterbury got in touch to offer him an International First Year Scholarship ($10,000 towards tuition fees), and a Go Canterbury scholarship, which includes $5,000 towards accommodation costs, as well as outdoor recreations trips and a range of personal development workshops.

International Student Manager, Denise Berry, commented: “We are all extremely proud of Jacob’s achievement. He has worked very hard to learn English and his academic record is excellent, as demonstrated by this fantastic offer from the University of Canterbury.”
