UC has developed a new app, UC Finder, to help new students and visitors find their way around our campus. The app is available to download free on Android and iPhone.

The app has a really simple interface, allowing you to easily locate your destination on campus such as lecture theatres, cafés, car parks, bike stands, libraries, computer workrooms, departments and other facilities.

Each location is shown on an interactive map and if your GPS is enabled the map will indicate where you are and highlight the path to your destination.

It’s really handy to have, so make sure you download it to your device today!

Have a look at the video linked above to see the app in action and to find out other ways of finding your way around in case your phone dies!

April Graduation Ceremonies

It’s that time of the year again when hundreds of students have applied to formally graduate and  mark the end of their degrees while  at the same time celebrating their time and achievements at UC.

This  April, two graduation ceremonies have been scheduled on two days at 10.00am and 2.00pm, with the Faculty of Engineering and Forestry and the Faculties of Arts and Education being held on the 15th and the Faculty of Science and Faculties of Law and Commerce  on the 17th respectively.

The ceremony, which takes place at the Horncastle Arena in Addington, starts off with the graduation procession where the graduands enter the hall to be seated for the ceremony. Once everyone has been seated after the National Anthem is sung, the Chancellor commences the ceremony following which degrees are handed out.

Graduating from the University of Canterbury is a matter of great pride and a day to remember that marks all  our achievements at UC. I for one, can’t wait to hold my degree in my hand, but well, there’s still two years for that.

In the mean time though, if you’re dreaming of your far off graduation day like me and have professional photography experience, follow this link from Student Job Search in order to be and official photographer for the ceremony.
