My course immersed me deeply into my upcoming field very quickly. I felt like I was learning from experience constantly and inclusivity was considered very important within the course.
It was mentally and physically challenging. There were times when further support and communication were needed, but at the conclusion of the course I did succeed.
As a student coming from out of the city, accomodation options were numerous well situated for accessing the campus. They were, however, not cheap. The amenities and buildings were good.
On campus parking is not free and it can be difficult to get around. You may wish to consider public transport when commuting to and from campus.View more
Canterbury university handled the drastic change that came with the pandemic. While my first and second years were not what I was expecting, having to study from home for a lot of it, the university did a good job in creating a welcoming campus and making sure everybody felt safe and comfortable. As a recent graduate I had a good experience here, learnt a lot with my degree and made a lot of friends.View more

UC is a big university with many opportunities. Courses do a reasonable job in terms of providing students with engaging learning content. However, there is a heavy focus on learning specific concepts compared to applying skills to a future work place. (e.g., too much time writing about concepts in a 6000 word report in APA 7 compared to actually practicing those concepts in the real world). More work opportunities/learning specific work related skills should have a higher focus at UC.View more
The University of Canterbury in Christchurch is one of the leading universities not only in New Zealand but worldwide. It is renowned for its amazing international student environment as it has a wide range of facilities and services offered to students to ensure that they are able to smoothly transition from their country to New Zealand’s educational environment.
It also focuses on safety and security and has a Walk-With-Me service where if students need assistance or someone to walk them home, a security guard will be available at the listed numbers available throughout the campus.
Each faculty has its own wellness champions that are open to discussing issues that concern students. Most students who come in from abroad have a difficult time adjusting to a totally new country away from the safety and familiarity of their homes. They also provide assistance in terms of bullying, racial discrimination and other related issues. having a space to discuss and talk about such difficulties allows students the positive sphere and mindset to keep going.
The University has a huge library and its library services provide continuing learning and development support for bibliography manager software and other related software. They also have an inter-loan service where if students need materials that are not available, they are able to source them from external places and provide them to the students. There is a lot of help provided in terms of technological facilities and periodic learning and development lessons are held frequently in regard to library usage, exam preparation, using software and mental wellbeing.
The University has an impressive gym and recreational centre which provides access to numerous health benefits and training classes. The health centre on campus also provides efficient and prompt subsidized medical services which make UC such an ideal place to study and rejuvenate.
After spending years living in Christchurch and studying at the University of Canterbury, it has become my second home. The environment at UC is super supportive and gives students space to be creative, especially as art students; innovation is important while creating any type of project.View more
