Otago University 2022

In 2022 for the first time there will be a new certificate starting at Otago University in July.

SOCI404: Exploring Neuro-Disability in Health, Welfare and Justice Systems will be taught by long-time FASD specialist Professor Anita Gibbs.

It will be aimed at professionals but caregivers could also do it, particularly if they have already completed some education already. It will run July to October 2022 as a 400 level course at the University of Otago, for both distance and on-campus learners. The course can be completed as a stand-alone certificate or alongside other courses at Otago.

Commitments - you can do this paper either online or on-campus: Thursdays 4pm-5.50pm. For further info, click here or contact [email protected]
