Major Advising Pages

The University of Otago offers coursework, and has been identified as a strong curricular match, for the following UofM degree programs:

Global Identity

Global Identity: Connecting Your International Experience with Your Future is an optional 1-credit online course that helps you process your overseas experience and apply what you've learned upon your return. The course assists you in marketing your study abroad experience for future goals, making you stand out from your peers upon return.

Benefits of Global Identity

No Additional Cost

Because integrated-study programs like University Study programs provide less on-site support than other study abroad program models, Global Identity is offered at no additional cost (regular $200 tuition is waived for students on this program). Global Identity gives you the opportunity to work individually with a trained cultural mentor, helping you understand and articulate the skills you’re developing during your time abroad.Registration instructions will be emailed out via the Learning Abroad Center, or you can contact Ryan McCarthy for additional information.
