With about 30,000 students in residence during the academic year, Dunedin is one of New Zealand’s best centres of learning.
Otago Polytechnic and the University of Otago sit alongside one another, making for a greater campus area, just minutes’ walk from the centre of the city. You are likely to live within walking distance of your classrooms, libraries and gyms, and your neighbours are probably students too, so it is easy to make friends.
A short drive from the city centre and you can enjoy lovely beaches and other stunning scenery, and see some of the world’s rarest wildlife. Feel like getting out of town for the weekend? Then head three hours inland to Central Otago and indulge in all the snowsports and adventure activities you can handle!
You can study the majority of our programmes in Dunedin, except for those that rely on specialist facilities such as those in Central Otago.
