The advertising specialisation at the University of Otago is an amazing opportunity for international and exchange students, to and from Dunedin. The Brandbach participates in the main regional and international student planning and creative awards, and in our smaller country has close project-based relationships with agency networks and brands that are rare in the main centres of Europe and the US. This means that international and exchange students can enter for recognized awards that could define their careers in their home countries.
