To be offered a place at Otago you must also meet entry requirements for your chosen programme. More information regarding Entry Pathways for students applying for general bachelors' degrees and other undergraduate courses is available on the website.

You may achieve University Entrance but not yet received an offer to the programme you've applied for at Otago. This is because University admission and programme admission are updated separately. You should receive further updates about your programme application, so please monitor your eVision alerts:
