A range of scholarships are open to international students at the University of Otago.

If you are an international student who has completed or is in the process of completing Year 12 and/or Year 13 at a New Zealand secondary school or the University of Otago Pathway | Te Huarahi programme (or an equivalent foundation course at another New Zealand tertiary institution), you are eligible to apply for undergraduate entrance scholarships.

If you are an international student who has completed secondary school, or another recognised entrance qualification overseas and have not previously been admitted to the University of Otago, you will be able to apply for scholarships within your application for study.

International students may also be eligible for a range of other scholarships offered at the University, including postgraduate options.
