Otago Polytechnic

Shadow a student

We’d like to find out what it’s like to be a student at OP. We’d like to know what’s working well for you and what we can improve. So we’re sending staff members back to school to become students for a day! Would you be willing to be ‘shadowed’ by a staff member for a day?

Check out our Shadow a Student video to find out more. If you’d like to be involved, please contact Inge Andrew to register your interest.
