    Dunedin is the only true university city in New Zealand and a vibrant student community surrounds the academic hub. We strongly encourage students to undertake postgraduate study at Otago; we have a higher proportion of PhD students than any other university in New Zealand. We also have health sciences campuses in Christchurch and Wellington, a centre in Auckland, and a small campus for the College of Education in Invercargill. We have partner universities around the world and we foster numerous student exchanges. Our researchers frequently collaborate with experts in other countries and a large proportion of our research can be brought to bear on issues facing New Zealand and other parts of the world. We work in close partnership with Ngāi Tahu, the Māori people of the South Island, and we enjoy strong links with other iwi.

I am also confident that you will make lifelong friends while you are here.
