A global opportunity for UC students

UC’s International Relationships Office (IRO) are the team in the know if you’ve got a student with itchy feet and global awareness on their mind.

From studying the Korean language at Yonsei University to spending five weeks at Peking University, UC’s international connections provide outstanding opportunities for our students to gain valuable global experience at some of the best universities in the world.

One current opportunity is the 4th International Summer School on Land-Sky-Ocean organised by one of UC’s partner universities, China’s Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT).

Held in Weihai, one of the most beautiful and liveable cities in China, the programme allows students to experience the highlights of HIT’s expertise in ocean science and engineering, automotive engineering and aviation while receiving a platform to gain valuable insight into the fascinating culture and heritage in Shandong, China.

Five UC students represented UC for the 2018 HIT experience – read all about it, here>

Global awareness and the Gallup World Poll

Global awareness is one of UC’s graduate attributes ,and just one way you can become more globally aware is to take a look at the Gallup World Poll as it allows you to see how well Aotearoa New Zealand does relative to other countries on a wide variety of indicators.

Some examples of such comparison can be found in Associate Professor Tom Coupe’s latest column for interest.co.nz, here. 

In the column, Professor Coupe discusses  Aotearoa New Zealand’s performance in terms of housing affordability, public transportation infrastructure, gender relations, satisfaction with education, life and government.

For all this and more, check out the Gallup World Poll Database.
