POSTPONED Dunedin Tertiary Open Day

Posted on February 12, 2020


Due to the uncertainty surrounding the global COVID-19 situation, and following on from the Government’s decision to cancel all events with more than 500 attendees, we regret to inform you that the Tertiary Open Day event scheduled for May 3 and 4 has been postponed.

Tertiary Open Day is a key event for the University and we enjoy welcoming your students and their whānau onto our campus to experience what the University has to offer. We are working to determine a new date later in the year.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of this postponement, however the health and safety of our community must be our top priority.

We will keep you up to date as new dates are confirmed.

Visit here for the latest information on the University’s response to the COVID-19 situation, and how to keep well.


The Dunedin Tertiary Open Day (Otago University & Otago Polytechnic) is an immersive event designed to give you a first-hand experience of what the tertiary environment is like. Dunedin Tertiary Open Day 2020 will be run over two days this year, Sunday 3 May and Monday 4 May.

However, Monday is still the main day with all the usual activities – Expo, tours, presentations, sessions, etc. Sunday is a supplementary afternoon comprising of additional Health Science First Year presentations, college and campus tours, and a variety of other sessions and activities. If you are only able to attend Monday 4 May, you will still be able to see everything there is to offer, but if you can attend both days, you’ll have a more relaxed and comprehensive experience.
