Founded in 1869, the University of Otago has earned an international reputation for the quality of its research and teaching. Located in one of New Zealand's best preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the Southern hemisphere, Dunedin laid the foundation for its strong tradition in education. With over 18,000 students, the University constitutes one-sixth of the city's population. Dunedin's harbor is ideal for a variety of water sports including yachting, kayaking, and fishing. With 4 million people, New Zealand is one of the least crowded countries in the world.
