Student Services for Foundation Studies, University of Otago

If you are living in New Zealand but have not visited the South Island or Dunedin before, we can help you get to know the city and region. Most of our staff have lived overseas and know what it feels like to live in a country and culture that is different from your own. Student Services provides the environment to help you become part of our whanau or family. We want to help you during your stay in Dunedin so you can concentrate on your study.
