The Science Scholars programme


If you are always questioning how bacteria became resistant to antibiotics or what’s the science behind the cell phone or what will happen next at the Large Hadron Collider, then the Science Scholars programme is for you.

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.

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.
