Whitecliffe Tech Scholarship

In celebration of Whitecliffe's accreditation from IT Professionals NZ, we are excited to offer five scholarships for our technology courses in 2021.

This year has sparked an acceleration in demand for technology professionals in an already rapidly growing tech sector. Whitecliffe has a wide range of technology programs from level 4 to our new level 7 bachelor’s degree in applied information technology, preparing creative thinkers to be part of the change that technology is making in our world.

Whether it be software and app development, UX, network engineering or tech support; a career in technology knows no boundaries.

We are thrilled that Whitecliffe just received accreditation from IT Professionals NZ. We are one of only ten tertiary education organisations in NZ with this accreditation, and the only private tertiary establishment. Their accreditation approval included a commendation to Whitecliffe for its extensive stakeholder consultation and documentation, which has led to a significantly positive educational outcome for aspiring IT professionals.

In celebration of this achievement, we are excited to offer five scholarships for our technology courses in 2021!

Each scholarship offers one half-year (60 credits) of fees for any Whitecliffe Technology programme. Should the applicant be eligible for the Government’s Fees-free scheme, the scholarship will apply to the second year of study (or first year of study not covered by the Fees-free scheme).

  • This will not impact the use of fees free
  • By entering the applying the applicant is giving Whitecliffe the right to use their video for promotional purposes
  • The scholarship awarded cannot be attributed to any other study after admission
