Improving student communications – we need your help

Remember when you first applied to enrol at UC? Was it easy? Did you get all the information you needed to guide you through?

UC is working on simplifying and improving the communications students receive during the enrolment process… and we need your help.

Upcoming workshops
Look out for two workshops coming up over the next few weeks.

Workshop one (12pm – 1pm, Monday 29 July)
Provide feedback on the communications and notifications students receive when applying to enrol at UC. We want to know the good and the bad! (And, we’ll be serving pizza for lunch.)

Workshop two (to be held in August – time and date to be confirmed)
Work with UC staff to co-design a new process for communicating to students during the enrolment period.

You will be helping to make sure our enrolment communications are spot on – making it even easier for students to apply to enrol at UC. Plus there’ll be free food at the workshops!

How to get involved
To register for the workshops, email studentcommsproject@canterbury.ac.nz
