Enrolment - Applying


Creating your eVision portal

Before you can apply to Otago, you first need to create your eVision portal. The eVision portal is your one-stop shop for study-related information. Using eVision you can apply to study, access all important study-related information including lecture times and examination results, and maintain your personal information. eVision is accessible anytime, anywhere using the internet and mobile devices.

Creating your portal is a simple process. If you’re a new student, start at the Qualifications page. Click the ‘Apply Now’ button, which is only displayed while a programme is open for applications. This takes you to eVision where you can ‘Create new account’.


After you confirm you are a ‘New User’ and provide the required details eVision will allocate you a student ID number. Once you receive an email confirming your login has been created, you can log into eVision. You initially use your personal email address to log in. Once you login, you should see your portal Home page.

If you have previously studied or applied to study at Otago you already have a login. If you’re not sure, follow the steps to create a new account and eVision will check. If you already have a login, you’ll be contacted by University staff to either review your application or help you use the existing account or create a new one.
