Otago Polytechnic Liaison Team
Our Liaison Advisors aim to visit as many secondary schools as possible in the South Island and can be found at Career Expos throughout the country.
They visit schools in Term 1 and Term 3, beginning with a general presentation on study options to senior students, followed by individual course planning interviews later in the year.
These visits provide students with the opportunity to discuss their application, entry requirements and learning pathways.

Resources and information for anyone wanting to study with us
Visit our Future Students page for information about our:

You can book a tour and find out about our taster days - we'll even arrange for you to sit in on classes that you're interested in.
Entry requirements for our programmes
We offer a wide range of qualifications, from certificates to postgraduate programmes. NZQA recently awarded us the highest possible quality rating for our educational performance, and our ability to assess our own performance.
Each of our programmes has specific entry requirements that applicants need to meet. This information can vary per qualification and programme level.
The best way to find out entry requirements is to check the programme information - you can access all programmes from the Study section of our website. You can also find the application dates and start dates there, too.
For example, this is the programme information for the Bachelor of Nursing.
Foundation and bridging options
If an applicant doesn’t meet the entry requirements for the particular programme that they’d like to pursue, don’t worry! We have a fantastic range of foundation and bridging programmes that will enable them to build the skills and credits that they need.
Accommodation in Dunedin, Central Otago and Auckland
There is a range of accommodation options when you choose to study with us - whether you want to live in a hall of residence, go flatting or live in homestay accommodation.
