Fantastic Trip in Dunedin

I’m so pleased to have such an opportunity coming here. Everything here is amazing and seems like quite different experience for me!

The university of Otago is so big, students with multi-background gathered here, campus here is beautiful, Gothic architecture looks cool.
I visited the building for the business school and enjoy the extraordinary view on the 9th floor.

We had two guides helping us know the campus ,that’s pretty nice and thank them for their kindly help.

By the way, my homestay here is amazing, they are so so so nice, and it’s my great honor to meet them!!!!!!!

Thank for the great chance and I have fantastic time here. I will always keep the memories here!!!!!

I’m sure I’ll come back again soon!
Thank you all the way.

Wonderful Internship Experience in University of Otago

I'm a junior student of Fudan University who lives in Shanghai, China. This year I was luckily chosen to be one of the 12 winners of the Dunedin Mayor Scholarship, so I have an opportunity to go abroad to Dunedin and have an internship at the International Office of University of Otago.
On the first day, we visited on campus and the scenery was very beautiful. The University of Otago has a very long history. On the campus, majestic and exquisite ancient buildings can be seen everywhere.
Then I went to the international office of the University of Otago to have an internship. The colleagues there were very friendly and carefully taught me how to work. I have a good communication with them. The internship there is very pleasant and I do learn a lot from that.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
work as an intern in a foreign country and meet lots of friendly colleagues there.

Excellent research reputation, International recognition and an amazing campus

The University of Otago has an excellent research reputation, International recognition with its amazing campus.
Otago Business Schools is accredited with two international agencies – EQUIS and AACSB – this is a reassurance to of the quality of education available from the Business School, a degree from UO, is an incredibly valuable qualification.
It is located in Dunedin, only ten minuted walking from the city centre, the people here are friendly and enjoy helping international students.
