Mature students have different needs from school leavers. You’ve got more life experience and perhaps already a successful career. Whether you are embarking on university study for the first time, or returning after an extended break, Otago is here to help.
Planning my study
Making my decision
NewStart is a free introductory seminar, held on campus, tailored specifically for mature students who are considering enrolment at University of Otago for the first time, or returning after a long absence from tertiary study. The seminar covers a wide range of information and aims to give a better understanding of how the university 'works'. It is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
