Univerisity of Otago

by talon726

I'm a college student from the United States and I plan on spending next semester at the University of Otago. I'm a Chem major and I was mostly wondering how hard the course work is compared to American Univerisities. Mostly to arrange how many classes, papers, to take.

Also, any other practical tips would be welcomed about NZ college life, or NZ in general. Thanks! :)

Just remember in NZ you will be a university student, not a college student. A college student is still in high school. :-)

Re: Univerisity of Otago

by JustAnotherTourist

The thing you need to realize is that Otago uses a British-type format instead of semesters or quarters. That means that some classes will meet for the year with one huge final exam in November over the entire year! This can be quite challenging for those used to a fifteen-week semester. The depth of the material will be very similar, but the length of the course makes it much more difficult. Choose classes that meet for shorter lengths of time to break up the year, (you'll just have to search for them). The main thing to do if you are going to Dunedin is to plan to go for twelve months, so you can stay and tour around after the academic year. My suggestion would be to plan most of your extra time at the END of your year so you will have a chance to get a feel for things and to meet some people you might want to either travel with or meet up with along the way. Dunedin is a great place to tour from - you will be a short distance from some of the most magical places on the planet. Be sure to spend plenty of time in Fiordland - you won't regret it. Have a great trip.

Travel Tips for Dunedin

A Railway Station with Character

by rozehill

One of the world's most photographed stations, this 1906 basalt and Oamaru stone building includes a huge copper-capped tower with heraldic emblems, a spacious foyer decorated with Majolica tiles and a Royal Doulton mosaic floor and stained-glass windows depicting steaming locomotives. The New Zealand Railway cypher features on almost every surface.
The architect, George Troup, earned the nickname 'Gingerbread George'. The station is open daily. This Flemish inspired neo-Gothic building now incorporates a restaurant, booking offices, and is the starting point for a return trip on the Taieri Gorge Railway into rugged, spectacular scenery. There is an option to continue on to Queenstown via coach from either Pukerangi or Middlemarch

Portobello

by leighdave

Portobello is the heart of the Otago Peninsula. The Otago Peninsula is Dunedin’s most valuable asset.
From the village, roads also lead out to the Portobello Peninsula as well as Allans Beach and the back bays.
It is also halfway between Dunedin and Taiaroa Head.
Portobello is one of very few villages in Otago where the village commercial centre is adjacent to the sea and where most amenities and attractions can be found within a few hundred metres.

Activities and attractions here include: The Fish hatchries and aquarium, The happy hen house and craft store, 1908 cafe amd many more.

The Octagon

by victorwkf

The Octagon is the city centre of Dunedin where you find lots of restaurants, cafe, historical buildings, shopping etc. Why is it called Octagon, is because the roads at this place goes round like an Octagon shape. Anyway, you cannot miss this place when you are in Dunedin.

yellow eyed penguins

by margaretvn

The reserve is a private conservation effort to save the world's most endangered penguin from extinction. It is funded completely from the tour programme. A little old bus takes you from the booking office up the cliff to the site, from there you walk with the guide along the cliff and down into the tunnel system. This allows a close view of the nesting sites without disturbing the penguins. Pre-booking is necessary. Take good walking shoes and protective clothing as the wind blows hard along the cliff.

SEE THE WORLD CHANGING FROM YOUR SEAT

by I-Believe-I-Can-Fly

Shortly afterward our journey began. The train went through the city, forests and fields, then gradually entering into the rocky valley, passing bridges, viaducts, tunnels and rivers far below. We even disembarked at points where the view is good.
