The Science Scholars programme


The Science Scholars programme is an exciting programme for the best and brightest science students from New Zealand and abroad. You will join a select group of science students, from across the faculty. Science Scholars will work closely with the University of Auckland's leading scientists and teachers and support and extend each other. As you earn your degree you will develop the skills you need to thrive in a science-based career, taking part in research activities and participating in specialised lectures and seminars.

Completed in conjunction with the Bachelor of Science (BSc) or Bachelor of Advanced Science (BAdvSci(Hons)), the Science Scholars Programme combines one-on-one mentoring with the cross-disciplinary interaction and research opportunities that aren't usually available in undergraduate study. As you earn your degree, you will develop the skills you need to truly excel in a science or technology-based career, taking part in research activities and participating in dedicated lectures, seminars and activities.

Entry to the Science Scholars Programme is competitive, and we are interested in both your potential for academic success, and your engagement with activities outside the classroom.

Please note: If you are studying Biomedical Science, you can be a Science Scholar, provided you don't want to gain entry into Medical School. The requirements for entry into Medical School mean your first year courses are completely chosen for you.
