Our Dunedin campus welcomed staff and students from our partner institution South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) in the United States in early February.
The college has articulation agreements into our business and visual arts degrees. A number of students will be transferring credits they gained at SPSCC into Otago Polytechnic programmes.
Last week, we hosted Dave Taylor, senior Vice-President International of Niagara College, Canada, to our Central and Dunedin campuses.
He was particularly interested in learning about our Māori Strategic Framework - Canada is undergoing a Truth and Reconciliation process with its indigenous cultures, and a number of partner institutions are interested in our strategies for success of our Māori students.
Recently, we welcomed 72 international students who are beginning their studies with us. Thirty of these students are here for a semester on exchange agreements with partner institutions, principally from Europe.
We are looking forward to hosting Adam Thomas from our partner institute Humber College, Canada. He will be collaborating on research with our information technology programme.
