My name is Shayan Zarakhsh and I am a PhD candidate in Marketing at the Department of Management, Marketing and Entrepreneurship (MME), University of Canterbury. My research relates to Airbnb users’ perceptions of the company and its impacts. I am writing to invite you to participate in an interview as part of the research data collection, providing that:
- You have not attended my PhD confirmation defense; and
- You have stayed at an Airbnb accommodation at least one time within the previous year.
There is a $20 Westfield Gift Card offered to each participant as an ‘interview thank you’ gift.

The 2017 STAR brochures are now available in print and online.
This programme offers keen and capable secondary school students from anywhere in New Zealand the opportunity to complete courses at UC while they are in Year 12 or Year 13. This year UC has had over 230 STAR students enrolled from 81 secondary schools around the country.
There are two versions that cover separately:
- distance courses
- on-campus courses.
Hard copies will be distributed to general and academic staff involved in the programme in the coming weeks. Other staff can order copies of the brochure by contacting Franka Menzies, Academic Processes Coordinator, Academic Services Group.
View the 2017 STAR at UC brochures online and find out more about this programme on the STAR Programme website.
Do you know any students who could benefit from getting ahead over summer?
UC’s Summer school brochure is now available online.
This is a great way for students to shorten the time it takes to complete their degree, retake a course they failed during the year, spread their workload or pick up a prerequisite course.
There are nearly 100 courses available for students who want to get ahead in their studies over summer. Enrolments open 4 October for November and January start courses.
