Gain practical experience in research science
Hands-On at Otago is a programme intended to give students practical experience in research and university life. This kind of opportunity is usually only available to graduate students.
The Hands-On at Otago fully funded Pacific Scholarships are awarded to 10 students each year and are intended to inspire and motivate our young people who have a passion for the sciences and wish to develop their knowledge and skills alongside other like-minded students.
