Discover the University of Otago with POCE
Pacific On-Campus Experience is an opportunity for Year 13 Pacific students to learn more about the University of Otago. This Programme is run in conjunction with the Dunedin Tertiary Open Day. The aims of the programme are:
- Promote the University of Otago as the best university for Pacific students
- Promote tertiary education to Pacific students and their communities
- Provide hands-on assistance and guidance with study choices
- Present Dunedin as a great university city for students to find their place in the world
When does POCE take place?
POCE runs from Sunday 05 – Tuesday 07 of May 2019.
Pacific senior students nationwide are selected competitively on the basis of a reference from their School Principal, a set-topic essay (500 words), and their NCEA results. Over a three-day period, the scholarship cohort attends organised programmes, including the University’s contribution to Dunedin Tertiary Open Day.
All expenses (travel, accommodation in residential colleges, programme activities and meals) are met by the University.
Students must seek permission first.
