Academic excellence attracts Chinese student

A scholarship enabled Chinese doctoral student Jiayan Lin to study with her ideal supervisor in New Zealand.

Jiayan, who is studying for a Doctorate of Philosophy in applied linguistics, is supervised by Professor Rod Ellis at the University of Auckland.

She had read a book by Professor Ellis and heard him speak when he visited China. When Jiayan found out he lived in New Zealand, she successfully applied for a New Zealand International Doctoral Research Scholarship so she could study with him.

“I cherish the opportunity that the scholarship has given me to study in New Zealand,” Jiayan says.

I have the ideal supervision here. Studying here has also really helped my English, and I like living somewhere that is clean, has a natural environment and is culturally diverse.
