I refer to your email, delivered via the FYI website and dated Monday 3 July, where you requested information
regarding UC Undergraduate Entrance Scholarships and Go Canterbury Scholarships. The information you have
requested is provided below. Please note that data for 2017 are the figures for the year to date.
1. How many UC Undergraduate Entrance Scholarships have been awarded for each year in the past 5 years?
Number of UC Undergraduate Entrance Scholarships Awarded
2. I understand that they are awarded based on what level you achieve at high school, so for each year in the past
five years how many have been handed out for each category that defines how much money you get?
This information is provided below. Please note, this relates to students who obtained NCEA only. Our systems
do not al ow extraction of student information grouped by other qualifications such as Cambridge International
Examination, or International Baccalaureate, so we are unable to provide this information at this time as it
would require extensive manual cross-checking. If you would like details of scholarship recipients with non-
NCEA qualifications this can be requested, and the University wil determine the amount of hours required to
find this information. The provision of this information may be subject to a charge under s15 or be refused
