University of Canterbury

New Zealand’s second oldest university, the University of Canterbury (UC) has an international reputation for academic excellence in both teaching and research. Founded in 1873, UC is a prestigious institution ranked in the world’s top 250 universities. Its undergraduate degrees and postgraduate programmes aim to foster intellectual independence, critical thinking, and professional excellence in every field. UC was the first university in New Zealand to receive a five-star rating from QS for its excellent research and teaching methods.

UC is a full research and teaching university that offers over 190 different programmes at the foundation, undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral level. UC embraces diversity and has thousands of international students from over 100 countries on campus. UC operates field stations in Cass, Kawatiri Westport, Harihari, the sub-Antarctic Snares Islands, and Antarctica; and Aotearoa New Zealand’s premier astronomical research facility at Ōtehīwai Mount John, Takapō Tekapo, famous for its clear southern skies. These facilities mean that UC offers research opportunities in the field that no other New Zealand university can match.

The university consists of five individual colleges: Arts, Business and Law, Education, Health and Human Development, Engineering, and Science.
