Student obtaining course advice from University staff

Our Student Advisers in Student Development offer a friendly ear to listen and provide guidance on what matters to you. Through one-on-one collaborative discussions Student Advisers can provide:

  • Course advice and planning based on your academic goals and aspirations; and
  • Connection with our wider support services e.g. Student Exchange, scholarships, Student Health, Student Learning Development, Careers Development Centre, Disability Information and Support, support for Pacific Island and Māori students.

By providing course advice and connecting you to services around the University, we will ensure you’re well-equipped for success during and after your time at Otago.

Course advice is available throughout the year, and at any time during your studies.
