Students Planning to attend Otago

The Liaison team for the University of Otago is based not only in Dunedin but also in Auckland and Wellington. We visit every secondary school in New Zealand during Terms 1 and 2 each year to let senior students know about the opportunities for living and learning at Otago. Then we return in Terms 3 and 4 to help with course planning.

We are also available to speak to students and their parents in our offices by interview, telephone, email and Skype. We can help with course planning at any stage in a student's university career.

Enrolment for new students is now available online: www.otago.ac.nz/study/enrolment

Application for accomodation at the Residential Colleges for first year students: www.otago.ac.nz/about/accommodation
