Exchange Students

The University of Otago has exchange agreements with more than 90 tertiary institutions worldwide. The student exchange programme provides an opportunity to study topics not available at Otago and to immerse yourself in another culture.

If your marks average B or better, you may qualify to attend one of these exchange institutions for one semester or a year. You pay only your New Zealand fees and complete your qualification within the same timeframe as if you had never been away.

Which universities can I go to?

Visit the Otago Global Student Exchange website if you are an Otago law student considering the student exchange programme. This site includes a list of partner universities suitable for Otago law students.

What do I need to do before going on an exchange?

You need to read the Faculty of Law’s one-page information sheet and checklist for outbound law exchange students. There has been a policy change in relation to exchanges that will apply to all students that have not yet been approved in principle to go on exchange by the exchange office. Please read the attached information carefully.

Once you’ve completed the checklist, you must have your proposed course of study approach and learning agreement signed by the Faculty of Law’s Stephen Smith. Please make an appointment with him directly for this.
