Welcome to Otago International School

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Otago International School.

In addition to being New Zealand’s oldest and most research intensive university, the University of Otago is also dedicated to excellence in teaching. The University is located in Dunedin, a beautiful and friendly South Island city, with a strong arts and music culture.

We welcome many students from around the world to spend a semester or year in Otago and explore New Zealand, but we know that time is limited for some of you. The shorter period of the International School – and timed during the Northern Hemisphere summer – provides an opportunity for you to study more about the New Zealand environment and culture, while also enjoying the special “town and gown” experience that the University of Otago offers.

We hope that you will have a fantastic time with us and make Otago your second home.
