The Postgraduate Diploma in Science is completed in one year by full-time students and consists of four papers (as specified under MSc papers below) and a research project consisting of original research in an area of the student's own choosing. It is a similar course to that followed by Zoology Honours students at Otago and is appropriate for students with a three year BSc degree in zoology, biology or ecology awarded elsewhere, or for mature students returning for a period of advanced study.

All students should have a confirmed supervisor before applying for postgraduate courses. Applications for entry to this course should reach the Administrator, Division of Sciences, by 10 December for the following year.
