Students Planning to attend Otago in 2014:

The Liaison team for the University of Otago is based not only in Dunedin but also in Auckland and Wellington. We visit every secondary school in New Zealand during Terms 1 and 2 each year to let senior students know about the opportunities for living and learning at Otago. Then we return in Terms 3 and 4 to help with course planning.

We are also available to speak to students and their parents in our offices by interview, telephone, email and Skype. We can help with course planning at any stage in a student's university career.
