The Student Affairs Office

The Student Affairs Office is responsible for all matters relating to students' personal, academic, and pastoral care.

The Office follow-up matters such as absences, exam results, class division process, withdrawals, and readmissions. We also offer mentoring and career guidance.

If you’re studying at the Dunedin School of Medicine and have matters impacting your academic performance or wellbeing, please get in touch early to see how the Student Affairs Office can help.

All personal matters are treated in confidence.
