We understand that leaving the support of family, friends and familiar surroundings can be hard. At the University of Otago, we provide the support and care necessary to ensure students study hard, enjoy life and succeed.

For some students, going to university is a family tradition. For others, it may be a family or community dream.

The University of Otago is well aware of the aspirations Pacific people have for their young people, and has been heavily involved in realising these educational dreams since the late 1960s. It is also aware that for an increasing number, university is a new experience, and they are blazing a trail for others to follow.

We're proud to be a sponsor of Pasifika - visit our tent to learn more about what Otago can offer you and your family.
