Everything UC students need to know including exam info, scholarships, events and more.

Third, fourth, fifth year and postgrad student workshop

If you’re in your third, fourth, or fifth year of study or you’re a postgraduate student, we want to hear your thoughts!

We’re running a workshop to get your views on things like how UC communicates with you, whether the information you’re receiving is useful, and what sort of communications grab your attention.

The workshop will be held on Wednesday 2 May at 9.30am and will take around 2 hours.

If you’re keen to take part and available at that time, email Hannah Seeley, Senior Communications Advisor – hannah.seeley@canterbury.ac.nz.

Free stuff! All participants will receive a $20 UCSA food voucher and go in the draw to win a $50 University Bookshop voucher.

ANZAC Service

On behalf of University of Canterbury Students’ Association, I would like to invite you to our ANZAC Service on Wednesday the 25th of April at 10.00am.

The sense of unity that is widely felt on ANZAC Day is important to acknowledge, and together we can commemorate a day of such special significance to New Zealand, within our community.

All are welcome to attend; for us, this is an important occasion for students, staff and the wider community to come together.

The Service will take place on the Quad between Matariki and Puaka-James Hight Building followed by light refreshments at the Okeover Lawn.

Kind Regards
Josh Proctor
