            Broadened my mindI really enjoyed by time at Otago University and I gained alot from my time there. In hindsight, I certainly could have applied myself to my studies more, but this is something I have learnt since leaving and ultimately - I regret nothing. The Lecturers were incredibly helpful, the facilities were excellent and if I could do it all again I would, in a heartbeat. The whole experience taught me a general life lesson - assess everything by breaking it down into manageable pieces, in order to achieve a full overview. I gained much from my time at Otago, I am very thankful to the Lecturers who put their time into me and would recommend the experience to anyone wanting to broaden their mind.

            I'm a confirmed PhD candidate progressing as a distance student.I have enjoyed the times I have been on Campus the staff are really helpful and willing to assist in any way. I can only recommend the Dunedin campus as I haven't been to the other sites. I like that the campus is easy to access, the location is ideal, within walking distance of where I stay when I am there visiting my supervisors.
