We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the Victoria University of Wellington and Huawei 2018 Seeds for the Future Programme.

The programme provides a vital link between classroom learning and the type of real world situations students will face once they enter the workforce. It aims to challenge and inspire students who are considering a future in technology, and to provide an immersive experience of life at one of the world’s leading technology companies.

Up to four recipients from Victoria will be invited to attend this programme in 2018, with preference given to third and fourth year students.

Successful candidates will attend a two week study programme based in Shenzhen, China, spending time at Huawei Headquarters and at its research and development laboratories. They will learn directly from those who are creating the next generation of consumer, enterprise, and network technology.

They will also experience a week in Beijing to learn about Chinese history, culture, and language, and to gain an understanding of New Zealand’s largest trade partner.

Huawei covers in full the cost of recipients' air travel, accommodation, travel insurance, entry visas and all meals.
