Rachel Goh - “What can you expect? ”


Rachel Goh

Rachel has travelled from Singapore to study Psychology at the University of Otago. She is often seen running around campus juggling various commitments. 


These events are obviously a small part of what is going on at Otago but to me, it was certainly a massive part of my whole Otago experience. Sadly, it will be time for me to focus my energies into my PhD next year but I am certain that these International Events will be present for you to fall in love with just as I did all those years ago. Thank you OUSA, ICOM/ICC, OSC, and the International Office for everything and more.


So don’t worry if you’re new to Otago, for you will have lots of options to choose from. It is up to you to go for it. If you happen to choose Otago to further your studies, I will probably still be here to welcome you with open arms. Feel free to say hi! Let’s goooo!

P.s. Shout out to the most amazing International Committee who have worked super hard behind the scenes. My Vice-Presidents (Hasani and Danielle), Secretary (Max), Treasurer (John), and General Executive (Andy, Bushra, Maple, and Thilini) – I am eternally grateful to you all.
