Visiting Lecturers

Visiting Lecturers Fund

Funding is available to bring academic visitors who are already in New Zealand for another purpose, to the University of Otago's Dunedin campus.

Visitors are expected to contribute to the teaching or research programme of a department within the Dunedin School of Medicine or Otago School of Medical Sciences, and—if appropriate—interact with other staff.
