The beautiful island nation of New Zealand is in the Southwestern Pacific Ocean several hundred miles off the coast of Australia. Known as the “the Edinburgh of New Zealand,” Dunedin is in the South Island at the end of the Otago Peninsula.
The city is spectacular with a mix of Edwardian and Victorian architecture dating back to 1847 when Scottish Presbyterians first arrived in the Otago harbor. Dunedin flourished as the region grew during the era of the New Zealand gold rush. Today, the city has a population of 120,000 and is known as a university town. It is a perfect location for nature lovers and has beautiful beaches and rolling hills. It is also home to the only Royal Albatross breeding colony in the world and the famous Yellow-Eyed and Little Blue Penguins. Live and study at The University of Otago in Dunedin while learning about New Zealand’s indigenous community by taking Maori culture courses on language, society, and performing arts. Visit a Maori marae, a traditional meeting place and connect with local students dedicated to keeping their culture and traditions alive.
