OUSA is your guide to all things studently. We're you, in a few years time. We know what you really want to know about coming to Uni. We've put all the big questions together on this page. Behind these buttons you'll find the basics about flatting, finding the right Hall (or College, as we call 'em now), studying, life around here in general, and what we - OUSA - are to you. (We ARE you!)
Each section tells you what the basic terms mean, what questions you should ask before signing that bit of paper (be it your enrolment form, your lease, your college application...), what advice people have who've done it, and what we say - as well as a few links to both official and unofficial websites to help you get to grips with things.
This is your one stop shop for thinking about Otago Uni - and we're adding to it all the time. Stick with us - and you'll be ok!
