Student Affairs Office

Te Tari Take Tauira Hauora


The Student Affairs Office is responsible for all matters relating to students’ personal, academic, and pastoral care.

The Office follows up matters such as absences, exam results, class division process, withdrawals, and readmissions. We also offer mentoring and career guidance.

If you’re studying at Otago Medical School’s Dunedin campus and have matters impacting on your academic performance or wellbeing, please get in touch early to see how the Student Affairs Office can help.

All personal matters are treated in confidence.
