Graduate Research


The University of Otago regards research as the heart of the University's academic activity and we believe that the synergy we have achieved between research and our graduate degree programmes contributes powerfully to our reputation as one of New Zealand's two outstanding research universities.

The two major graduate research programmes at Otago are the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree and our various research Masters' degrees (a Master's degree with a thesis component is referred to as a research Master's degree).
