2022 Graduation


Our 2022 graduations were very special as we celebrated all those who worked hard during the Covid-19 pandemic to complete their qualifications.

Graduate stories

“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."

"At the ceremony, I saw Khyla Russell stand up to acknowledge all the Māori students who walked across the stage. I wanted to do that, to be a cheerleader for Māori and be part of their journey.

"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."
