UC has broadened the way I think. Academically, I've learned to examine the deeper principles behind a society’s laws. As a person, I feel really confident now. Here you get to break barriers and to do things you wouldn't expect.

Giving support. Sharing ideas.

Nikita Day - Ngāti Tama, Te Atiawa
I did a project-based internship at Fab Lab around financial sustainability. I built them an economic analysis tool in Google Docs. It was really good to see how the theories we learn in class can apply to a business setting. It gives you direction for your study.

Budding entrepreneur. Broad thinker.

When I first arrived I stuck to Sri Lankan circles. But as time’s gone on I’ve made friends from Australia, Colombia, India, the Middle East, the US & UK. But in fact diversity is broader than that. It’s about appreciating people with different abilities, interests, hobbies, genders, sexual orientation.

Sport without sacrifice.

I’m originally from Gore, but I play netball for the Mainland Tactix. I was studying distance at Otago, but I really wanted the campus experience so I switched to UC. I’m hugely passionate about sport. I love watching netball, I love playing netball. I guess I'm a wee bit obsessed!
