Otago Polytechnic

Otago Polytechnic is one of New Zealand’s leading polytechnics and public tertiary institutes of technology. We have achieved the highest possible government endorsement for our performance and our qualifications are widely recognised, both in New Zealand and around the world. We are part of many national and international networks and partnerships, including the Cumulus Association (Design), the International Foundation of Fashion Technical Institutes (Design), and Metro Group (Engineering).

We give our students the opportunity to engage with industry by involving them in a range of exciting ‘real world’ projects as part of their learning, and 98% of our graduates are in work, or further study, or both.

We offer programmes in Health and Community, Creative, Hospitality, Business, Tourism and IT, Horticulture and Farming, Trades and Technical, and Sport and Adventure.

If you have studied in Dunedin’s high schools or foundation programmes, we guarantee you entrance to Otago Polytechnic’s programmes when you meet the entry requirements.

We look forward to welcoming you on campus.
