Otago Polytechnic researchers and their students across many disciplines contribute to professional and community networks nationally and internationally, and postgraduate students are invited to create partnerships for themselves.
Research is key to Otago Polytechnic’s role as a tertiary education provider. A strong research culture means better education for students and a great overall benefit to the wider community. Our teaching and learning activities are underpinned by research, which means all teaching practitioners are current in their field of expertise and in their teaching practice.
This not only develops the capability of our staff, but of our students and graduates. We are drawing on our institutional strengths and core capabilities to engage with collaborators, with the professions, with industry and our communities, and we apply our expertise to help solve challenges.
