University of Otago

 

University of Otago, New Zealand

[Note: This information is provided by the University of Otago.]

Welcome to New Zealand’s first university and the first choice for around 21,000 students. After more than 150 years, the University of Otago still leads the way with world-class teaching and a legendary student lifestyle – the two core elements that set it apart, and the reason students from around the world choose Otago. With 195 undergraduate and postgraduate programmes on offer, many of the courses at Otago are the only ones of their kind in New Zealand.

  • Ranked #1 university in New Zealand for educational performance by the Tertiary Education Commission.
  • The first New Zealand university to achieve Fair Trade status and to pursue the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
  • Otago academic staff and researchers have worked closely with the New Zealand Government in an advisory capacity in the fight against COVID-19.
  • National presence: as well as the main Dunedin campus, Otago also has campuses in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Invercargill.
  • The University’s Dunedin campus is recognised as one of the most beautiful in the world.

The University of Otago main campus is located in the city of Dunedin – New Zealand’s student capital. Students make up one-fifth of Dunedin’s population, creating an energy and atmosphere that you’ll only find at Otago. Dunedin offers a wide range of accessible leisure activities. Ride the waves at some 30 nearby beaches, take on excellent mountain biking tracks, paddleboard, kayak or sail on the harbour, or head to Central Otago for a weekend at New Zealand’s top ski fields. It’s just part of life in Dunedin.

To be eligible to transfer into the second year of the three-year Bachelor of Commerce program at the University of Otago in one of the listed disciplines, students must successfully complete the Associate in Business Degree at SPSCC, having taken specific courses as outlined in the Articulation Agreement (see below), and graduated with a cumulative GPA of 3.00.

Articulation Agreement
Please note: either the University of Otago or SPSCC can terminate or modify the articulation agreement at any time. It is vital the student notifies the SPSCC coordinator, Dr. Patrick Chapman, and the University of Otago during the application process that the student is applying by means of this specific articulation agreement. Students that have completed the AB degree at SPSCC may be accepted into the second year of the three-year Bachelor of Commerce program subject to the same requirements as outlined on the University of Otago website for applying students.

To be eligible to transfer into the second year of the three-year Bachelor of Commerce in Tourism degree at the University of Otago, the SPSCC student will need to:

  • successfully complete an Associate in Business degree with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00
  • successfully complete the following SPSCC classes:
  • ACCT&201, Principles of Accounting I
  • ACCT&202, Principles of Accounting II
  • ACCT&203, Principles of Accounting III
  • BUS 240, Principles of Finance*
  • ECON 201, Microeconomics
  • ECON 202, Macroeconomics
  • MATH 146, Introduction to Statistics

*if BUS 240, Principles of Finance is not taken at SPSCC, the student can still transfer per this agreement. However, the equivalent University of Otago class, BSNS 114 – Financial Decision Making, will need to be taken at Otago, which could delay the student’s progress at the University of Otago.
