Postgraduate study


The University of Otago Medical School's international reputation attracts very large numbers of postgraduate students from within New Zealand and around the world. Postgraduate students have the opportunity to contribute to leading research programmes and undertake research-based degrees.

The University's flexible degree structure means that a broad range of multidisciplinary thesis topics is available. In some subjects, it may be possible for international students to complete their thesis in their home countries. In addition, our clinical medical schools in Christchurch, Dunedin, and Wellington provide significant input to postgraduate vocational training to enable graduates to meet the requirements of various specialist professional colleges such as surgery and medicine.

Postgraduate programmes in diverse areas of medicine and health sciences are available at our three medical campuses. The University also offers two postgraduate options specifically for MB ChB graduates, the MMedSc and the MD.
