Dunedin Tertiary Open Days

Held every year, Dunedin hosts a Tertiary Open Day, which is a collaborative event between us and the University of Otago. It’s a great chance to explore our Dunedin campus and see first-hand the fantastic range of study options we have available.

You'll find people to show you around, answer your questions and have the chance to interact with different study areas - giving you a taste of life at Otago Polytechnic.

Event updates due to Covid-19

This year, due to the ever-evolving Covid-19 situation in New Zealand, our Tertiary Open Day will look a little different. We are working with the University of Otago and our regional secondary schools to ensure that this event takes place in a safe way and follows government guidelines.
