Higher Education Commission Scholarships

These scholarships are offered by Pakistan's Higher Education Commission (HEC) for Pakistani students seeking to pursue PhD degrees at Massey. The scholarships are awarded to candidates of strong academic merit who are expected to make a significant contribution to the development of their home country following completion of their studies.

Under an agreement established in 2005 with HEC, Massey has now welcomed over 100 Pakistani PhD candidates to study at its three campuses in New Zealand.

Student Testimonial

“Massey provides a conducive environment for higher education and scientific research. To work in the industrial sector in my area of study, and to learn from the experiences of the people already working in this sector is very exciting. As a female, I appreciate that I can enjoy a balanced work lifestyle here at Massey University with my family."

Amna Farrukh, PhD student, School of Food and Advanced Technology
