Tū Kahika: A Health Science Scholarship programme for Māori
The University of Otago’s Tū Kahika Scholarship is a two semester (from February to October) Health Sciences programme.
Tū Kahika is run within Foundation Year, and prepares Māori students academically for their first year of tertiary study and a future career in Māori health. As a Tū Kahika student, you will receive guaranteed accommodation in a Residential College, and financial assistance towards your tuition fees and accommodation costs.
The name Tū Kahika comes from a southern variation on the name of the kahikatea tree, which grows well with the support of others around it.
