If you're in your first year studying at Otago and live in the local Dunedin community (either at home, flatting, boarding, or renting), then you can be part of the Locals programme.
Locals is open to students who come from New Zealand or anywhere else in the world, and is there to help you get the best out of your first year at Otago.
The programme provides access to academic, social, sporting, and community-based opportunities. They also offer study advice and skills workshops, and there is a Locals HQ where you can study and meet up with other Locals. A team of University staff and senior students provide mentoring and support as you study.
