Pre-Christmas Summer School

  • Five weeks of full-time study

  • All papers have full academic credit – most are the same point value as semester papers

  • One 18-point Pre-Christmas Summer School paper constitutes full-time study and therefore only one paper can be taken in the Pre-Christmas Summer School period

  • Key dates

How to enrol

Current students

If you are already enrolled for the current year, you can request a Change of Course to add a Pre-Christmas Summer School paper. You can do this via your eVision portal, under “Programmes and papers”.

Returning students and new students

Until early September you can enrol in a Pre-Christmas Summer School paper via eVision, either by re-enrolling in your existing programme, or applying for a new programme.

Enrolling at Otago

Once enrolment opens for the next academic year (usually the first weekend in September) you will no longer be able to enrol via eVision for the current academic year. To enrol in a Pre-Christmas Summer School paper after this time, contact AskOtago for assistance.
