Welcome to the University of Otago Placement Portal


Student placement (this includes practicum, internship and work experience) is a critical learning activity that enables students to develop skills or gain clinical or work experience through the practical application of their learning.  The University has a placements system, known as Sonia, to support and management of placements.

This Portal provides students, staff and our external partners with easy access to information on Sonia, about the placements they are undertaking or supporting.  The Portal is being progressively rolled out to departments.  The departments listed below are managing their placements using Sonia.  To access a department's Sonia page, click below.


Students: Please keep your address up to date in eVision while you are on placement.
