Next steps if you're new to UC

Activate your IT account

Activate your student IT account to give you access to a number of online resources for students. Details on how to activate your account are sent to you in a 'Welcome to UC' email. 

Set up your student email account

Your student email account is active for the duration of your time at UC and is where communication from UC is sent during term time. 

Log in to LEARN

Log in to LEARN and get acquainted with the portal where course content and information will be. Your courses will be available on LEARN by the first day of the semester.  

Create your timetable

Create your personalised timetable of lectures, tutorials and/or labs. You will be able to allocate yourself to streams for your enrolled courses once they're 'open for allocation' in My Timetable. If you are enrolled in Distance (D) courses you will not have a timetable for these courses. 

Complete the Orientation+ online modules

Complete the online modules to make the transition to university life easier. Topics covered include an introduction to UC, study wellbeing, the UC community, safety and security.

Attend UC Herea tō waka | Orientation Day

Get to know your way around campus. Taking place on the Friday before Semester One starts, it is a chance for new students to come on campus, connect with their peers, and get amongst the UC community. 

Get your Canterbury Card

Your Canterbury Card (student ID card) is your formal identification for around campus. It gives you access to buildings, library resources, UC Rec and Sport, UCSA membership, and can be used to pay for printing and photocopying and as proof of identity during examinations. If you are studying on campus you can get your Canterbury Card from the Security Office. If you are studying offshore, you can arrange for one to be sent to you. 

Register for mentoring

Student mentors volunteer their time to help you settle in during your first semester at UC. Your student mentor will be a student who has recently completed first year. They can answer your questions and help you settle into university life – from general study tips and great places to eat to where to go if you need support.

Next steps if you're returning to UC

If you've studied at UC before you'll likely already know about checking your student email account, allocating yourself to streams for lectures, tutorials and/or labs in My Timetable, and logging in to LEARN for course info. 

Update your contact details

Make sure your contact details are up-to-date (including your email, phone, postal address and emergency contact details) in myUC. 

Register to become a mentor

If you've finished your first year at UC, register to become a mentor for new first year students. A small time commitment can make a big difference in a new student’s experience at UC. It’s a great chance to meet new people, develop your leadership and communication skills, and it looks great on your CV. Training will be provided before the start of semester with further training opportunities and networking during the year.
