Otago Polytechnic is one of New Zealand’s top providers of hands-on education. Student satisfaction ratings are among the highest in Australasia, we achieved the highest possible quality ratings from government, and employers love our graduates for their knowledge, independence and creativity. We offer over 100 programmes – from foundation certificates to postgraduate degrees – at campuses in Dunedin, Central Otago and Auckland, and off-campus to students around the world! We can even assess the knowledge you already have, and have this count towards a qualification.

We're committed to sustainability and have made a pledge to our community and students to "do the right thing" – working towards a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
