University of Otago Virtual Open Day

All welcome. Registration recommended.

Attending Virtual Open Day is a great option to help you explore all that Otago has to offer even if you can’t make it to our campus in-person.

You’ll find virtually everything you need to know about living and learning at Otago in our virtual expo hall:

  • Peek inside and explore each of our 14 residential colleges
  • See the Dunedin campus for yourself – take a virtual campus tour
  • Learn about scholarships and other key services available to students
  • Check out over 100 short presentations from academic programmes and courses
  • Tune into the Virtual Open Day LIVE segment to hear about life at Otago from those who know it best – our students.

Our helpful staff will also be on hand throughout the event to answer your questions via live chat.

This is an excellent opportunity for students and parents to interact with the University of Otago and learn more about course options, scholarships, accommodation and other services available at Otago.
