Otago Summer School provides an intimate learning experience, supplemented by the full resources of New Zealand's oldest and leading university.
With tuition provided at Dunedin, Auckland and Wellington sites, as well as by distance learning, Otago Summer School provides intense quality education.
Many papers are unique to Otago Summer School, while other papers are essential components of degree programmes. All papers have full academic credit and are of the same points value as regular semester papers, but are taught in six weeks instead of the 13 weeks of a regular semester. This concentrates the mind, and is particularly beneficial for studying.
Is it hard? Yes, universities are elite educational institutions, but with perseverance and application many people can achieve quite extraordinary results. For example, in recent Summer Schools a sixteen year-old has achieved an A+ and students in their 70s and 80s have frequently outperformed their younger classmates. It's entirely over to you.
Summer School takes place between 7 January and 21 February, 2013. Exams go from 16 to 21 February
In 2013 Summer School is offering 76 papers; Apply now online at otago.ac.nz

Students Planning to attend Otago in 2013:
The Liaison team for the University of Otago is based not only in Dunedin but also in Auckland and Wellington. We visit every secondary school in New Zealand during Terms 1 and 2 each year to let senior students know about the opportunities for living and learning at Otago. Then we return in Terms 3 and 4 to help with course planning.
We are also available to speak to students and their parents in our offices by interview, telephone, email and Skype. We can help with course planning at any stage in a student's university career.
