Taster days 

Get a taste of what it’s like to be a student on campus! We run a variety of taster days throughout the year designed to provide our future students with a better understanding of what it's like to study at Otago Polytechnic. 

We can often also arrange for you to sit in on a class and meet one-to-one with a lecturer, providing an opportunity to experience Otago Polytechnic in a way that is tailored to your interests. So come and see if our modern learning environment is the right choice for you.

Campus tours  

Otago Polytechnic operates tours of the Dunedin, Central Otago and Auckland Campuses upon request.  

Tours start with a warm welcome from an Otago Polytechnic representative, followed by a walk around campus, a visit to the schools, classrooms and some of our impressive facilities. The tour takes approximately one hour.

When booking, please specify the area of study you are interested in; this will enable us to customise your tour.
