If you are unsure about any aspect of your study, the University of Otago has dedicated advisers to help. Course advice is about giving you the information and guidance you need to get the most from your study at Otago.

Advisers can help you with:

  • Planning what you want to study
  • Choosing the degree and papers that are right for you
  • Considering your career aspirations and how your study fits
  • Making sure that you've got the right combination of papers to meet regulations
  • What to do if you have failed a paper

You can seek course advice at any stage — from before you start studying, right through to your final year.

Once you're enrolled, you may seek advice from an adviser in Student Development in a variety of ways:

  • Schedule an appointment
  • Visit our drop-in advice service in the AskOtago Central Hub. Advice is available between 1pm and 4pm weekdays — no appointment is required
  • Request advice via our email/callback form and one of our advisers will be in touch
