Planning when mapping out your degree programme will help you achieve your goals.

It can be helpful to ask yourself these questions when planning out your study:

  • What would you like to get out of your degree?
  • Do you have a particular career path in mind, or is there an interest that you would like to turn into a career?
  • Are you interested in ideas and the pursuit of knowledge?
  • In understanding how the world works, or making it a better place?

Otago has plenty of resources and information to help you plan your study.
