Continuing Education at Otago shares the results of academic scholarship within and beyond the University community, fostering discussion on matters of public interest. It is non-credit and includes lectures, seminars, short courses, interest-only papers, professional development, and continued medical/executive education, taught by University staff.

Continuing Education is for:

  • Otago Alumni
  • Parents of current students
  • The University community of staff and students
  • The wider community of interested and/or professional people with access to Dunedin and other Otago campuses
