Pacific On-Campus Experience (POCE) Scholarship Programme

Discover the University of Otago with POCE

Pacific On-Campus Experience is an opportunity for Year 13 Pacific students to learn more about the University of Otago. This Programme is run in conjunction with the Dunedin Tertiary Open Day. The aims of the programme are:

  • Promote the University of Otago as the best university for Pacific students
  • Promote tertiary education to Pacific students and their communities
  • Provide hands-on assistance and guidance with study choices
  • Present Dunedin as a great university city for students to find their place in the world

When does POCE take place?

POCE runs from Sunday 07th to Tuesday 09th May 2017.

Pacific senior students nationwide are selected competitively on the basis of a reference from their School Principal, a set-topic essay (750 -1200 words), and their NCEA results. Over a three-day period, the scholarship cohort attends organised programmes, including the University’s contribution to Dunedin Tertiary Open Day.

All expenses (travel, accommodation in residential colleges, programme activities and meals) are met by the University.
