Thinking of studying at UC?

Ngā Uara | Our values



Weaving the journey of science with culture

Environmental scientist Bryann Avendaño is one of eight international students studying in Aotearoa New Zealand invited to design his own graduation gown. It’s part of Education New Zealand’s Think New initiative, emphasising New Zealand’s unique attributes for international students and that an education here is about more than academic achievements and extends to their cultural journey.



Powering students this winter

Isolating and recovering from Covid-19 at home is extremely difficult without heating and ventilation. University of Canterbury students isolating at home due to Covid-19 can keep warmer for longer, thanks to a new grant helping pay power bills during the winter months.

Finish strong

Find the balance

When you’re focused on exams, it’s important to look after yourself too.
