Nominate great, nominate a mate!

Do you know someone who’s a natural leader, full of potential, ready to build a bright future for Aotearoa?

Maybe they’re the next University of Canterbury Young New Zealander of the Year – Te Mātātahi o te Tau?

Nominate great, nominate a mate!

If you know someone aged between 15-30 years old who is striving to improve themselves, their community and Aotearoa then recognise their mahi and nominate them for the UC Young New Zealander of the Year Award – Te Mātātahi o te Tau.

Click here to nominate. Nominations are open until August 31.

At UC, we’re committed to empowering young New Zealanders across Aotearoa to make a difference. We’re proud to celebrate these young leaders and support their success as they lead change in their communities.

Mid-year Orientation support sessions

Set yourself up well for study!

To help you make a great start, we invite you to one of the following practical Mid-year Orientation support sessions if you are studying on-campus. There is no need to book – just turn up to the session that suits your schedule. (Each session is followed by a Question & Answer session.)

Session times:
Thurs 20 July – 
4pm-5pm – K1 Lecture Theatre – Q&A 5pm-5:30pm
Mon 24 July – 
4pm-5pm – A1 Lecture Theatre – Q&A 5pm-5:30pm in A2

At your chosen session, you’ll be introduced to:

  • MyTimetable – and how to use it to select lectures, tutorials etc
  • The ACE dashboard  – what it shows and how to interpret it
  • Logging into Ako | LEARN where you access course materials and key deadlines
  • Connecting to digital services and more.

Bring your laptop as this is a hands-on interactive session, where you will be taking action to set yourself up for success.  To prepare, you need to set-up your UC wifi access and make sure you can log in to my UC with your student email and password – if you need help with that, visit the Digital Service desk at Te Pātaka on Level 2 of Puaka-James Hight.
