UC prides itself in the large ranging services and commitment that it provides for it’s Pasifika students and the wider Pasifika community in Canterbury.
Students who are of Pasifika heritage are strongly encouraged to make most of the support, events, programmes, and opportunities provided by the Pacific Development Team (PDT), and by the many other Colleges and Teams at UC.
In addition, the University of Canterbury runs a number of initiatives for the Pasifika community of Canterbury such as the secondary school programme UCMe XL.
XL is an outreach programme designed to effectively engage Pacific students with education.
There are a variety of targeted scholarships, grants and awards to fund university study for Pacific students.
UC's Pasifika students share their journeys, successes and other stories in blogs on The Insider's Guide to UC.
