Locals programme students

If you're going to be studying at Otago for the first time and living in the local Dunedin area, whether that is living at home, flatting, boarding or renting, then you could be part of the Locals programme for first-year students.

The programme provides access to academic, social, sporting and community-based opportunities. They also offer study advice and skills workshops, and there is a Locals HQ where you can study and meet up with other Locals. A team of University staff and senior students provide mentoring and support as you study.
