Exciting uni experience for Yr 12 Pasifika students

August 4, 2021

The Ambition programme is a fully-funded (flights included) scholarship that provides an amazing opportunity for Year 12 Pasifika students to sample living and learning at the University of Otago.

Students will explore the Otago campus and the student city of Dunedin. They will attend interactive workshops from four divisions – Health Sciences, Business, Humanities, and Sciences, as well as meet academic staff and students. They will experience life in a residential college and meet the staff who provide great support for Pasifika students when they come to Otago.

Who can apply?

You can apply if you are currently in Year 12 at a New Zealand secondary school, are of Pasifika descent, and you have acquired NCEA L1 with merit endorsement. You will need a character reference report from your school Principal (or equivalent) and to write a personal statement. See Mrs Shepheard in Careers if you are applying.
