About us

The University of Otago Language Centre and Foundation Year (UOLCFY) is a world-class educational institute that provides the perfect platform for further studies.

We provide a unique combination of English language tuition and Foundation tertiary studies which provides a pathway for students of varying levels of English and academic abilities to achieve their goal of gaining entrance to a prestigious university, while at the same time building life-long skills and friendships.

We strongly believe in creating a safe, supportive and caring environment with expert tuition and quality resources.

We are a truly multi-cultural organisation, with students and staff from all corners of the globe.

We run special scholarship programmes for Maori and Pacific Island students, and most domestic students will be eligible for StudyLink funding.

Our institute is located in the University of Otago Campus, beside a great café and huge gymnasium complex, and also next door to New Zealand’s premiere stadium.

Our building has been designed with teaching in mind, and uses state-of-the-art technology to ensure you get the most out of your time here.
