College of Education Otago University :

College of Education, University of Otago was established in 2007 through the merger of the University of Otago with the Dunedin College of Education. The College has the longest history of teacher education in New Zealand, the Dunedin College of Education ( DCE ) being established in 1876 for the training of primary teachers. The first classes at the University of Otago were taught in 1871. Teachers and those intending to teach comprised a significant proportion of students at Otago.

The University provided its first courses in education in 1905. Education has always been particularly highly valued in Otago, Dunedin also being the site of the first kindergartens and the first high school for girls in New Zealand. During the past 30 years the DCE expanded its teacher education programs to include undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and graduate diplomas in early childhood, primary and primary bilingual and secondary teacher education.
