Welcome to the University of Otago International Office blog.
Here we will share stories from Otago staff, students, alumni and friends. Stories about life at the University of Otago, and in the city of Dunedin. Stories that will leave you confident in your decision to step onto a plane and embark on your academic adventure to New Zealand.
The University of Otago is New Zealand’s first University, established in 1869. So we have 150 years of stories to share! With 20,000+ students, of which 2,800+ come from 100+ countries, Otago offers a place for all. Whether you are a school-leaver beginning your first degree, a postgraduate student advancing their knowledge in a specialist area, or a PhD student working towards being a world-leading researcher in your own right – we welcome you to the University of Otago!
