URL: http://www.otago.ac.nz/

Description:

The University of Otago was founded in 1869 and was the first University in New Zealand. The University of Otago is New Zealand's top-ranked university for research and has more than 21,000 students. Of its 21,000 students, 2,400 are international students.

The University of Otago has a long-established tradition of innovation and its graduates are highly favoured by employers for their independence and confidence.

City of Dunedin

The main campus of the University of Otago is located in Dunedin, New Zealand. Dunedin is the largest city in the province of Otago and is New Zealand's only true university city. It is comparatively cheap to live in Dunedin, particularly when compared to New Zealand's northern cities.

The Dunedin campus is situated only a few blocks from the city centre and on the edge of the Dunedin Botanic Garden. It is a charming campus and houses the prominent gothic Clocktower building designed by Maxwell Bury.

Dunedin's streets are lined with restaurants, bars and cafes. There are boutiques, markets, craft stores as well as contemporary shopping malls. Several of New Zealand's foremost designers are based in Dunedin. You can also find museums, libraries and the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in Dunedin. Students can also stop by New Zealands's only castle, Larnach Castle, in Dunedin.

Many sporting facilities are readily available, including more than 150 walking tracks, four championship golf courses and the St Clair beach, which is a preferred choice for surfing. The Otago Peninsula is also home to colonies of yellow-eyed penguins, the New Zealand fur seals and the Royal albatross.

New Zealand's Only True University City

University of Otago students rate Dunedin’s campus lifestyle as one of its greatest appeals. Dunedin is New Zealand’s only true university city, with university students and staff making up one-sixth of its population.

New Zealand

New Zealand offers a sample of every possible landscape within a relatively small country, from rolling green farmland to barren volcanic desert areas, from golden beaches with clear blue water to majestic snow-covered mountains. New Zealand is similar in size to the United Kingdom or Japan but the population is only about 3.8 million. Most of the people live in urban areas, so the countryside is very sparsely populated.
