You are a recommencing student if you have been previously enrolled at Otago but not in the last two years.

As a recommencing student, you may be required to provide the same evidence as for a first year student and are subject to the Entry Pathway system:

Entry Pathway system
Evidence requirements

You may enrol again subject to the standard provisions of the University's Academic Progress Policy and the admission and progression regulations for specific programmes.

Re-enrolling in a programme

If you are wanting to re-enrol in a programme that you were previously enrolled in but did not complete, in the Programmes and papers section of your eVision portal, you can click on your previous years' study and then click on the available to re-enrol link to begin the re-enrollment process.

Enrolling in a new programme

If you are wanting to start a new programme, you will need to apply for programme admission via the Apply for a programme link in your eVision portal, or by clicking the yellow Apply now button on the relevant programme's page on the University website.

Returning students

If you have taken a gap of less than 2 years of study, you are considered a returning student. Returning students are normally exempt from having their programme applications assessed under the Entry Pathway system, however, are still subject to the standard provisions of the University's Academic Progress Policy and the admission and progression regulations for specific programmes.
