While graduation may mean leaving Dunedin, it does not end 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 30 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. The events schedule is published in the Magazine, and posted on the Otago Alumni & Friends website.
The Alumni & Friends website also includes information on alumni networks around the world.
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.
