What is Continuing Education?

Continuing Education is all forms of non-credit teaching and learning activity which makes available the fruits of academic scholarship for inquiring minds within and beyond the university community, and which fosters discussion on matters of public good in the University's role as critic and conscience of society.

Continuing Education is for:

  • University community of academic staff, students, and professional staff
  • Wider community of interested and/or professional people with access to Dunedin and other Otago campuses
  • Otago Alumni
  • Parents of current students
