While graduation may mark the end of your life in Dunedin, it is not the end of your links with Otago.
Information about Distance Learning
You can still continue to study at Otago through Executive Education and Professional Development short courses, as well as the many Distance Learning programmes.
For more than 20 years Otago has provided fully supported Distance Learning courses which enable you to study individual papers or an entire programme at a distance.
The Development and Alumni Relations Office
The Development and Alumni Relations Office coordinates ongoing contact with graduates and diplomates, to keep you updated on what's new to the University, and especially what's new for alumni.
As a graduate you will receive the University of Otago magazine three times a year, and invitations to events which take place for Otago alumni in New Zealand and around the world.
Our schedule is published in the Magazine, and posted on the Otago alumni web pages which also include information on alumni networks around the world. Alumni can now access an Otago alumni email forwarding address by registering on the 'Your Otago Link' section of the Alumni and Friends website.
Information about the Court of Convocation
All graduates automatically become members of the Court of Convocation, the electoral body of those eligible to vote for graduate representatives on the University Council.
As a member you may send comments or submissions on matters affecting the University to any of the three Court of Convocation representatives on Council. Nominations are invited every four years for members of the Council and, if an election is required, voting papers are sent to all eligible alumni.
Information about the Federation of Graduate Women
The New Zealand Federation of Graduate Women (NZFGW) is a non-profit, charitable non-government organisation. In the main centres, branches hire academic regalia for graduation ceremonies to raise funds for scholarships, grants, and awards.
Local branch programmes include talks on topical subjects, panel discussion, study groups and social activities.
