MSc

An MSc in Physiology is an exciting and rewarding experience. In the Department of Physiology, the usual route is a PGDipSci (instead of 1st year MSc) followed by 2nd year MSc where you are engaged in full-time research for 12 months (or part-time research for 24 months).

Applying for Masters Thesis entry into the Department of Physiology

Once your 400-level marks are known, all prospective Masters thesis students must submit the following documentation to the Departmental Administrator for vetting by the Head of Department and the departmental Research Committee:

Applications will be assessed by the Departmental Research Committee. A decision on acceptability for admission will be made as soon as possible. If admission is granted, apply formally using the University of Otago application form.
