Graduate stories

Rika Vermue horticulture v2 FillWzYyMywzNTVd

"Living in Central Otago and being surrounded by vineyards prompted me to pursue a different career – in horticulture. For me, it was an obvious choice for my future work."

Gina Vet Nursing 600X600

"I decided to pursue the NZ Diploma in Veterinary Nursing because I wanted to bring my qualification up to current industry standard, as I had been nursing for so long. I also wanted a qualification that reflected my experience."

Stefan Savage Mason for social

“I worked on a stencil kit that will be used as a way of keeping children entertained, get them thinking creatively and also to show the many different career options available based on studying at Otago Polytechnic.”

"I also like the fact that Otago Polytechnic’s School of Architecture nurtures a studio-based learning approach that helps learners understand the value of strong relationships and architecture that responds to place. We keep growing every year."

Student Story Rosa Nevison 1200X610 Vertical Highlight 2 v2

"I love working on something that combines so many of my interests – music, photography and print media, and is especially gratifying to be able to put something into the world that people enjoy and find value in."
