International Short Courses

UC 11 0183

The College of Education, Health and Human Development is a specialised Educator training institution and has been a leader in this field in New Zealand for decades. It is part of the University of Canterbury, located in Christchurch on New Zealand's beautiful South Island.

Our academic staff are international leaders in their fields and are committed to providing world-class training to both domestic students and international clients.

We work closely with international institutions to design and deliver quality, client-focused training programmes that consistently receive positive appraisal from the participants. Courses can include visits to schools and other educational institutions in Canterbury and field trips to places of cultural, historic or scenic significance.
