International student enrolment and orientation

Please see our virtual welcome pack which includes an electronic copy of Otago’s International Student Handbook.

Alternatively, please see the 2022 Otago’s International Student Handbook (PDF)

Research Masters' or PhD students

If you are a new international PhD or research master's (thesis-based) student, please visit the Clocktower Reception between 9am and 4pm Monday–Friday as soon as possible after your arrival. You will need to bring your passport and visa with you to be verified.

Once this process has been completed, you will be contacted by an International Student Adviser who will set up a Zoom meeting appointment to cover arrival information, assist with completing your enrolment, and answer any questions you may have at that time. You will also have an opportunity to sign up for the next PhD / Master by Thesis welcome session. These sessions are run twice a month.
