Otago Polytechnic

May Graduation ceremony cancelled 

Due to the current restrictions caused by Covid-19 and so as to ensure the health and wellbeing of all our students, guests and staff, the OPAIC May Graduation ceremony has been cancelled.

We regret any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause. 

In order to assist with your post-graduation intentions, as soon as we are able to we will print your qualification certificates and official transcripts, and post these to you by registered courier. 

Once they are confirmed as eligible to graduate, students completing their studies in Block 5, 2019, and in Blocks 1, 2 and 3, 2020, will be contacted directly by the Graduation team to confirm their mailing address. 

Note that no collections of Graduation documentation from campus will be permitted. 

You will still be entitled to graduate in person at the November 2020 Graduation ceremony, and we very much hope to see you there. We will open registration for this event in September.

Those who do attend will be presented with a letter of congratulations, given that they will already have received their certificate.

Graduation at the
Auckland International Campus

The next graduation ceremony for eligible Auckland students will be on Thursday 19 November 2020.

Otago Polytechnic Auckland campus has two graduation ceremonies every year, one in April/May and one in November. Registration opens in March for the April/May ceremony and in October for the November ceremony. If you are unable to attend, you can defer to a later graduation or graduate in absentia. Check this page closer to the next graduation date for more information.
