Scholarships and awards
The Department of Applied Language Studies and Linguistics offers a number of scholarships and awards for its undergraduate and postgraduate students.
First in course awards
First in Course Awards were established in 2010 by the University of Auckland Council.The main purpose of these Awards is to recognise the student(s) who obtained the highest overall mark in a taught course.
- The Awards will be known as the “First in Course” Awards.
- The Award will be recorded on the recipients’ official academic transcript.
- The Awards will be allocated at the end of each semester to the student(s) whose academic performance identifies them as having achieved the highest final marks in a particular taught course. Recipients must have achieved a minimum final grade of A-.
- In the event that two or more students obtain a final percentage mark that is within a margin of +/- 0.5%, this award will be shared.
- Recipients of the Awards will be endorsed by The University of Auckland Council upon the recommendation of the relevant Dean of Faculty or their nominee.
- The University of Auckland Council has the power to amend or vary these regulations provided that there is no departure from the main purpose of these Awards.
- Directed reading and individual study courses, as defined by Faculties, are excluded from consideration for these awards.
- Winners will be notified by the Scholarships Office.
The Senior Scholarship is awarded to the best student in the department in their final year of the undergraduate degree (i.e. stage III). The senior scholar must have attained at least an A- average in their major. This scholarship is designed to encourage top completing students to return to graduate study and is valued at NZ$250.
