With about 30,000 students in residence during the academic year, Dunedin is one of New Zealand’s best centres of learning.
It's a vibrant student city that blends the best of both worlds – it’s an energetic, innovative urban centre and a safe, welcoming place to study, live and work.
The city is big enough to cater for all tastes and small enough to make you feel at home. At the front of global trends, Dunedin is New Zealand’s incubator for IT, entrepreneurship and fashion. The city’s recently regenerated Warehouse Precinct is attracting creatives, IT start-ups and small businesses. Every March, Dunedin hosts iD Dunedin Fashion Week – one of New Zealand’s most exciting fashion festivals.
Study in Dunedin and join an increasing number of students who enjoy the city’s unique and distinctive style, and lively cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Make the most of the great shopping, awesome gigs and eateries offering food from around the globe. The city also gives you easy access to spectacular scenery, sandy beaches and some of the world’s rarest wildlife.
Our Forth Street Campus is within easy walking distance of downtown Dunedin, right in the middle of the student district. Our Cumberland Street Campus is in the heart of the city centre – with our beauty, hairdressing and media training facilities nearby.
Read more about Dunedin at the city's official website.
