UC renews UCIC partnership with Navitas

We’re pleased to announce that we have renewed our agreement with global education services provider Navitas Limited, for the conduct of pathway programmes at UC International College (UCIC) in Ōtautahi Christchurch, until 10 December 2023.

Established in 2013, UCIC offers a range of exclusive university transfer programmes into UC undergrad programmes in commerce, engineering, science and product design, as well as foundation and study abroad programs. 

“UC is pleased to continue to partner with the UCIC pathway programme, which was the first of its kind in New Zealand, designed to assist international students to better adapt to the challenges of living and studying in a new country. It’s most fitting that this agreement will take us into the 150th anniversary year of the founding of the University in 1873,” says Vice-Chancellor | Tumu Whakarae Dr Rod Carr. 

Navitas Group Chief Executive Officer, David Buckingham said: “We are delighted to be extending our partnership with the University of Canterbury which has enabled many international students to study at one of New Zealand’s premier universities and look forward to continuing to support the University’s International Growth Strategy”.
