Little big city

Little big city

Dr Karl Iremonger
Lecturer

Returning to New Zealand after 6 years overseas, I had almost forgotten what a great place Dunedin is. For such a small city there are so many fantastic cafes, restaurants and shops. The main street is always bustling with people and there are always events on around town. The thing I have missed most about Dunedin is its proximity to some of the best outdoor environments in New Zealand. A short drive in one direction takes you to pristine beaches with sea lions and penguins while the other direction takes you to deserted mountain tops. It is nice to be back in Dunedin.

The Physiology Department's staff are so approachable and genuinely happy to help. Having lecturers be so positive and excited about their work makes study so much easier!
