Dunedin values and cares about the care its students receive – so much so that the University of Otago and the Otago Polytechnic were the first to sign the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. This code ensures all the information a student receives about studying in Dunedin is true, while putting into place support and helping to ensure where they live is safe.
Dunedin’s Residential Colleges also provide pastoral care that is unmatched in New Zealand university cities.
High Schools have a considerable range of different care options that focuses on integration and enjoying the New Zealand experience as well as education.
As well as education providers ensuring that students are well informed, safe and properly cared for, Dunedin quietly offers a huge range of wrap-around support that reflects the community nature of a small city. Students benefit from care as diverse as church-provided cheap lunches, or markets on campus. Not only that, the tertiary institutes enjoy a special relationship with Dunedin’s business community, whose leaders give their time to lecture, mentor and host students in their workplaces.Adding Add to Information File Remove from Information File
