Future Students Office

UC's Future Students Office provides a link between the university and students getting ready to study for the first time. Our office is often the first contact for students thinking about starting their first degree at UC. We're here to help you make an informed decision about your study options. Find out more about the Future Students Office.


If you have a question you want answered - give us a call!

We can provide prospective students with information about the university system in general and the courses, qualifications, support and facilities at the University of Canterbury.

Staff visit schools, work with Career Advisors, and senior school students and attend careers expos and events around the country. We also host events on campus so you can find out what being a student at UC is all about.

We can assist you with first-year course planning, information and queries about university study. Current, advancing and transferring, and postgraduate students should contact the Student Advisors within the Faculties for course planning and advice.

We can also assist you with enrolment questions, subject and degree information, university entry regulations, Campus Tours, Māori and Pacific information and scholarships and can help you plan your degree.

We have offices in Ōtautahi Christchurch, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland and Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington.
