Visits to school

Schools' Liaison Officers visit New Zealand secondary schools during Terms 1 and 2 each year to introduce senior students to the opportunities for living and learning at Otago. We are able to make presentations to all students, from self-selected groups to entire year groups.

Follow up Course Planning visits take place during Terms 3 and 4. This is a good time to look at individual courses and answer any burning questions that students have as they prepare to move into tertiary education.

We contact each school at the beginning of every year to organise suitable times for these visits.
