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 contact Sherie Bell to register your interest.

Have your say about a ‘Universal Record of Achievement’

Would you like to be able to get an ‘official’ electronic record of your learning that you could print, download or email?

How about being able to log into your own ‘learner home page’ on the NZQA website and view your most relevant or up-to-date qualifications?

The NZQA is designing a prototype of what a ‘Universal Record of Achievement' could look like for learners – so make sure you have your say!

Prototypes are now available on the NZQA website – what do you think?

Thanks for your feedback!

Robertson Library: new method of printing

From Friday 1 July, the following new method of ‘Follow me printing’ will occur to all printing in the Robertson Library.   

  • You will still print as normal but at the time of collection you will need to login to the printer/copier with your OP username and password
  • You will then need to select the print jobs you wish to release  
  • You can send multiple print jobs to the printer/copier, then go and release all of them at the same time.
  • You will only be charged when you choose to release a print job. If your print job is not released within four hours, it will be deleted. You will not be charged for any deleted print jobs

If you have any questions, please call the OP Service Desk on 0800 765 948 or emailservicedesk@op.ac.nz
