Māori students

Planning for your future is a big step and here at Otago we are here to support you. Otago Māori students and their whānau have access to a wide range of support services, as well as scholarships and a dedicated School of Māori, Pacific and Indigenous Studies: Te Tumu.

On Campus Experience (Māori students)

On Campus Experience (OCE) is a fully funded scholarship that provides an amazing opportunity for senior secondary students (Y 13) of Mãori descent to sample living and learning at the University of Otago.

Students will explore the Otago campus and the student city of Dunedin. They will have the opportunity to attend lectures in their areas of interest as well as meet academic staff and students. They will experience life in a residential college and meet the Mãori Centre staff that provides great support for Mãori students when they come to Otago.

This year's On Campus Experience was in May. Dates for next year's On Campus Experience will be advised later in the year.

Nga Mahi Students 2017

The University of Otago offers several Hands-On at Otago scholarships for students of Maori descent.

These are fully-funded scholarships that provide a wonderful opportunity for students who are both interested in science and are entering Year 12 or 13 in 2018, to participate in the Hands-On at Otago programme.

Hands-On at Otago is a programme intended to give students practical experience in research and university life - the kind of opportunity normally only available to graduates.
