    Extra support for Otago students in lockdown

    Extra support for Otago students in lockdown


    The University of Otago has released details about how they'll move forward - with the country set to go into a month-long shutdown at midnight tonight.

    Emergency continuity coordinator Andrew Ferguson says they're trying to make things as easy for students as possible.

    He says international students who've been recalled to their home countries can access online learning material - and they're being very flexible with assignment dates.
