Invitation to special presentation on NZQA Code of Practice for International Students

Have you heard about the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students? The Code of Practice is part of the Education Act and requires education providers to ensure that international students are well informed, safe, and properly cared for. UC is currently completing its annual self-review reflecting on its support for international students. If you want to participate in the self-review, contact your College Dean or Unit Manager/Director for details.

General and academic staff are encouraged to attend a special one-off presentation by NZQA on Wednesday 25 October from 12pm-2pm in Undercroft 101, followed by afternoon tea. This is an opportunity for staff to learn about what requirements UC must meet in order to comply with the Code and how to support international students during their time at UC.

Watch the video invitation prepared by members of the International Student Experience & Retention Group (iSERG) and please encourage your colleagues to attend by sharing this invitation. For more information and to register your attendance, please email kara.kennedy@canterbury.ac.nz
