Planning your study at Otago

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.
