Otago Polytechnic

Applying online is a quick and convenient way to submit an application for an Otago Polytechnic programme.

To make the process as stress-free as possible, here are some things that are helpful to know.

How long will it take?

The application form should take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

What you’ll need to apply

We recommend that you have all the information you need on-hand before you start. Then you won’t need to worry about saving your application and coming back to it later. You will need:

  • Your NZQA or National Student Index registration number, if you have one. If you can’t find it, don’t worry, we can still process your application.
  • Your IRD number.
  • Your academic history - including how many credits you have achieved in
  • Your NCEA Levels 1, 2 and 3 results, or similar/equivalent achievements.
  • Your iwi details, if applicable.
