​If you're enrolled at the University of Otago in the current academic year and you require evidence of this, a "Statement of Enrolment" can be generated through eVision. This is an official document, on University letterhead, confirming your current enrolment.

If you are a confirmed finalist, this statement will certify that you're currently enrolled in sufficient papers to complete your qualification/s, with major subjects or endorsements noted where applicable.​

Generate statements of enrolment or completed qualifications

Your academic record in eVision will also show whether you are a finalist; however this is not an official document.

If you're graduating this year and have already completed the requirements for your qualification, generate a "Statement of Completed Qualifications" instead.

International Students

If the downloaded statement doesn't provide you with all the information you need, email from your student email address, to request a personalised statement.

Returning students will need to email and request a "Confirmation of Enrolment" letter. The letter you can download yourself in eVision is not accepted by Immigration New Zealand.

Teaching period on statements for PhD students

Statements for PhD students will note the teaching period as either Full Year or Part Year; it will not state which teaching period a part-year student is enrolled in. Statements only contain the teaching period information that appears in the academic record. If such a student requires more detailed information refer them to the Doctoral team who can produce an individualised statement containing the required information. This is not printed on secure statement paper.

A student's finalist status may not show on their Statement of Enrolment if it has not been verified by Student Records.

Check a student's verified finalist status in eVision:

  1. Click on their ID number.
  2. Navigate to the Programme tab.
  3. Select the programme.

If the student is not a verified finalist, escalate this to Student Records by assigning to Student Administration — Records Management General.
