What is the On Campus Experience?

University of Otago - On Campus Experience Scholarship, 2018 - details to be advised early 2018

On Campus Experience (OCE) is a fully funded scholarship that provides an amazing opportunity for senior secondary students 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.

If you are currently in your final year of study at a New Zealand secondary school, are of Mãori descent, and you have acquired NCEA L2 with merit endorsement (or an equivalent for CIE and IB students)

Feedback from the 2017 OCE students:

“A way to experience the complete package Otago has to offer and meet like minded Maori students”

“ The aspect of OCE 2017 that made it special for me was the people, the travel and the unique experience we had living in the residential college in the Uni”

“2017 OCE was a great experience, I would recommend it to any Maori student”
