What is Student Exchange?
The University of Otago Student Exchange Programme allows students to undertake study at an international partner institution and credit the work they complete back to their Otago degree.
The 30 minutes exchange seminars provide full information about the Otago Global Student Exchange Programme. They cover the application process, course credits and finance options, including scholarships and awards available. Students will also be directed to the best source for obtaining information on the host institution.
We encourage all students to attend a seminar before seeing an Exchange Adviser or before completing the application form.
Exchange seminars are held three times a week during the university's main lecture period:
- Tuesdays and Thursdays: 12pm
- Wednesdays: 2pm
- Venue: Student Resource room, Room B07, basement of the Archway West building (144 on the Campus Map).
We welcome late applications, destinations will be subject to availability. Please contact the Exchange Advisers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
