Being prepared

Life at the University of Otago will be an experience like you’ve never had before - exciting and challenging.

At Uni the lecturers won't always remind you when your assignment is due, or make sure you turn up to an exam on time. You may be living away from home for the first time – cooking your own meals and doing your own washing.

Being prepared can help make it more exciting, and less of a challenge.
