When you first arrive at Otago Polytechnic Auckland International Campus, you will take part in an Orientation. It will introduce you to your new study environment and allow you to learn about the services, facilities, and support available. Orientation includes presentations from academic and professional staff, an introduction to your programmes and lecturers, an IT induction, and workshops about employability. Attendance is compulsory.

How will Orientation help me?

At Orientation you will:
