Please see our virtual welcome pack which includes an electronic copy of Otago’s International Student Handbook.
Research Masters' or PhD students
If you are a new international PhD or research master's (thesis-based) student, please visit an International Student Advisor at the Central Library AskOtago Hub between 11am and 4pm Monday–Friday as soon as possible after your arrival. AskOtago will be able to direct you.
Bring your passport and visa with you.
An appointment will be arranged for you to meet with a member of the International Student Support Team who will cover arrival information, assist with completing your enrolment, and answer any questions you may have at that time.
You will have an opportunity to sign up for the next PhD / Master by Thesis welcome session. These sessions are run twice a month.
