Enrolment at Otago involves three phases:

  1. applying to the University and/or for your programme
  2. completing your online course enrolment
  3. paying your fees

Before you start, you should decide:

  • what you intend to study (e.g. programme, major subject or endorsement and papers)
  • where you intend to study (in Dunedin or another campus, or by Distance learning)
  • when you intend to start (Summer School, first semester or second semester)

Are you applying for the first time at Otago?

When you’re ready click the ‘Apply Now’ button on the page of the programme you wish to enrol in, which is only displayed while a programme is open for applications.
