You don't have to live in Dunedin to be a part of the Pacific student network at Otago. The University of Otago has over 120 programmes available for you to study by distance.
How we support distance students
Our job at the Pacific Islands Centre is to assist you in your academic journey in any way possible.
We can support you by providing you with academic support via our academic mentoring programme by finding you a reliable mentor to assist and guide you in your studies (this can be another student, staff member or professional person in your field of interest and might be in your city.)
We can also give you blackboard access to the Pacific Islands Centre, which will provide you with important information and details of upcoming events.
And of course we would love to meet you and help you celebrate in person when you graduate in Dunedin!
