Published October 2009 by the International Office, University of Otago.
Studying abroad expands our horizons,
and encourages cultural understanding
and international co-operation. I know
that I benefited hugely from a period as
an exchange student (in Boston) while I
was at Medical School in New Zealand.
At the University of Otago we are very proud
of the quality of teaching and research
provided, and of the exceptional campus
lifestyle enjoyed by those who study here.
The University of Otago is New Zealand's
and Dunedin is a university city unlike
any other in New Zealand or Australia.
We value students from other countries for
their contribution to the life and cultural
diversity of the campus and the city, and
we appreciate the opportunity to share with
them an experience of the New Zealand
way of life.
I would like to invite you to our University
and to the beautiful city of Dunedin.
I am sure that your time here will be both
stimulating and rewarding.
Professor David Skegg
