University of Canterbury

The University of Canterbury is located in Christchurch, the largest city in New Zealand’s South Island. When established in 1873, Canterbury College, as the University was originally known, was only the second university in New Zealand. Canterbury offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in some 50 disciplines, from accountancy to zoology. It has a number of specialist research centres and operates five major field stations at Kaikoura, Mt John (University Observatory), Cass, Westport and Harihari. Locally, six halls of residence provide board for up to 2000 students. Some 12,000 students are enrolled and each year about 3000 students graduate, 650 of them with higher degrees.
