What is the On Campus Experience?

On Campus Experience (OCE) is a fully funded scholarship that provides an amazing opportunity for senior secondary students of Māori descent to sample living and learning at the University of Otago.

Campaign & Maori St#2418299

Students will explore the Otago campus and the student city of Dunedin. They will have the opportunity to attend lectures in their areas of interest as well as meet academic staff and students. They will experience life in a residential college and meet the Māori Centre staff that provides great support for Māori students when they come to Otago.

If you are currently in your final year of study at a New Zealand secondary school, are of Māori descent, and you have acquired NCEA L2 with merit endorsement (or an equivalent for CIE and IB students) you should consider applying for the On Campus Experience.

Successful OCE students will be selected to attend one of two OCE programmes in 2020 (the one application will cover both dates).

First OCE 3–7 May 2020 (includes Tertiary Open Day)
Second OCE 5–9 July 2020

Applications have now closed.
