Alumni and Friends

Otago Polytechnic alumni and friends share a common bond as former students or staff from one of New Zealand’s leading providers of career-focused education.

We are proud and privileged to be the place where many of you launched or grew your careers.

With a history dating back to 1870 (with the opening of the Dunedin School of Art), we have alumni and friends of all ages around the world. Wherever you are, we would love you to hear from you.

Registrations are welcome from former students and ex staff and will entitle you to a range of exclusive benefits and savings and add you to the mailing list for our 'Alumni and Friends' quarterly e-newsletter.

From 2015 on, all graduates are automatically registered as alumni and are entitled to the benefits above.  All former alumni and staff should register as alumni to access these benefits.

We welcome your comments about your career and life experiences since you’ve left Otago Polytechnic, and any thoughts you would like to share with current students and partners. This is also a great place to reconnect with other graduates and those now in your industry.



Distinguished Alumni Awards
