Student Workshop Programme

Our workshops are great for finding out what is expected of you at all levels of university study. These workshops are interactive, informal sessions designed to help you discover new techniques and skills to support your study. Whether you are an undergraduate or postgraduate student, we have a wide range of workshops on offer. Search for a specific workshop or browse our selection.

If you are a Christchurch postgraduate student, you will be emailed the details of all Christchurch workshops at the start of each semester. A reminder will be sent a few days before each workshop.

The Postgraduate workshop programme will be open for registrations from mid-January. The Undergraduate semester one workshop programme will be open for registrations from Orientation week. For any questions about our workshop programme please email Student Learning Development Reception

If you are a University of Otago staff member and would like to request a student workshop for your department please contact Student Learning Development Reception.
