  • Cultural adjustment and homesickness

A staff member from this team visits Christchurch twice a year in March and July. ISS typically emails international students in advance of their visit to schedule appointments with students. However, students are encouraged to email international.support@otago.ac.nz at any time when they would like to talk with an adviser.

Simone Freeman is the main contact person for Christchurch students.
