About the University of Otago and Scholarship
Te Whare Wnanga o tkou is the Maori name for the University of Otago, a public research collegiate university with its main campus in Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand. One of the oldest universities in Oceania and the first in New Zealand, Otago University, was founded in 1869.
A Thomas Burns-led committee established the organization, which was accorded official status by an Otago Provincial Council ordinance in 1869. From 1874 until 1961, the University of Otago was a part of the federal University of New Zealand and awarded degrees under that name.
The vibrant student population in Otago is well known for flatting, which is usually done in old houses. Students at Otago University have a long-standing tradition of naming their rooms. The term “Scarfie” for Otago students refers to their custom of donning scarves throughout the chilly southern winters. The university’s graduation anthem, Gaudeamus igitur, iuvenes dum sumus (“Let us rejoice, while we are young”), recognizes that students will continue to rise to the challenge, albeit not always in the way intended. New Zealand’s longest-running student publication is Critic, published by the university.
In the top 1% of universities worldwide, the University of Otago is routinely ranked. Additionally, the university received a 5-Stars Plus rating from QS Stars in its rankings of the world’s top universities. The QS Stars System, which weighs factors like Otago’s facilities, teaching, graduate employability, internationalization, and inclusion, allows you the highest possible ranking, which is what you can get.
John Edmond founded the Henrike Grohs Art Award in 1920 as a Research Fellowship in honor of his father to further chemical research about New Zealand businesses. Only chemistry students are eligible for the scholarship. The title “John Edmond Postgraduate Scholars of the University of Otago” must appear below the author’s name on any thesis summarizing the findings of the scholar’s study.
