The University of Otago Health Sciences First Year (HSFY) must be taken in your first year of university study, and is only available on-campus in Dunedin.

All enquiries for HSFY should be directed to AskOtago

Please note: Health Sciences First Year (HSFY) is not the same as Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHealSc).

You are strongly advised to contact AskOtago if you are considering tertiary study before enrolling in HSFY, as failure to do so could jeopardise your enrolment into this course.
