Y13 Maori scholarships to attend Otago University OCE

Posted on April 1, 2021

Applications are now open for the On-Campus Experience (OCE), which is a wonderful opportunity for Year 13 Māori secondary school students to explore the University of Otago and the city of Dunedin. The OCE scholarship provides each successful applicant with return airfares to Dunedin, accommodation, meals and activities.

Students will have the opportunity to attend lectures in their areas of interest, as well as meet academic staff and current students. They will experience life in a Residential College, and meet the Māori Centre staff, who provide great support for Māori students when they come to Otago.

Entries are sought from full-time Year 13 students of Māori descent, who are currently enrolled in a New Zealand secondary school, and are considering studying at the University of Otago in 2022. All applicants should be students who are completing an appropriate programme at secondary school level, which will lead them to meet University Entrance.

This year the OCE programme runs from Sunday 23 May to Thursday 27 May 2021.

Applications are to be completed online:


Applications close: 5.00 pm Friday 9 April
