Description:As a direct university enrollment program, Northwestern students will be able to experience first hand what it’s like to be a student in New Zealand; they will have access to nearly all the same opportunities and courses as Kiwi students and will rely on the University of Otago International Office for support. This is a program for independent students who are looking to immerse fully into regular Kiwi life.
- Full Year
Term Notes: This program follows the New Zealand academic calendar: Fall Quarter begins in early July and ends in November. Winter/Spring Quarters begin in early February and end in late June. Full Year is either February through November (the New Zealand academic year) or early July through late June (the U.S. academic year). Students may choose either option. Students going to Otago for Winter/Spring Quarters may participate in Otago's "Summer Session", which takes place in January. Students are not eligible to apply to Otago's Summer Session as a stand-alone program. They must submit an Application for Permission to Study on a Non-NU Summer Program to the Northwestern Study Abroad Office in addition to their academic year study abroad application.
