About the Certificate of Proficiency - Undergraduate
If you wish to take a paper which is not being credited towards a University of Otago qualification, you may enrol for that paper for Certificate of Proficiency (COP).
The Certificate of Proficiency is also available at Postgraduate level.
Taking a paper towards a Certificate of Proficiency at another New Zealand university
A candidate who requires less than a full-time course to complete an Otago qualification may do so by taking approved papers for Certificate of Proficiency (COP) at another university in New Zealand.
