From Study Centre to UC Banner  1

Start your UC journey overseas 

University of Canterbury (UC) has partnered with the universities below so our students who can’t start their UC qualification in New Zealand can still enjoy an on-campus experience.  

Start your journey with UC now! Base yourself at one of our Study Centres overseas, available to both new and current UC students.

In 2020, UC opened its first international study centre, designed to support our current students who remained in China and were unable to travel to New Zealand due to Covid-19.

We are now pleased to expand our study centre offerings to both new and returning UC students. Experience on-campus learning, even if you aren’t in New Zealand.

How does it work?

Study Centres give students the option to study online classes delivered by UC’s world-leading academics, and on-campus learning at one of our partner universities.  Students can access all of UC’s online learning and support services, in addition to local learning facilities and in-person support.

New to UC? : You’ll take a mix of courses taught by the Study Centre and courses taught online at UC. 

Current UC student?: You can choose whether you take only on-campus courses, taught by the study centre, or a mix of on-campus and online courses (taught by UC).
