Otago Polytechnic

Follow your Heart

Get paid to do what you love. If you can’t find the job you want, make your own.   

Turn your passion into profit with a side hustle in anything from bike mechanics to beekeeping or from beauty therapy to brewing. Do that business course and learn how to market your products. Start that IT course and learn to make your own website. Sell your art. Open that shop. Learn to grow or build and become self-sufficient.  

Lockdown has changed the landscape. You’ve had time to reflect on the path you’re on and wonder if there’s something more. Now is the time to reassess, reconfigure and refresh. There is more to life - you’ve just got to go after it. Take the scenic route.  

The government is funding schemes to get the economy pumping again. They’re investing money in education, so it’s the perfect time to upskill, retrain and prepare for your journey.  We exist to give you the skills and knowledge you want, and we’ve got programmes starting in July to set you on the path. Map your future - choose the career that feels right. It’s our job to get you there.
