The bigger picture

Good luck to everyone getting their semester one results this evening!

While some students will feel quietly confident, others might be anxious and nervous about what their results mean for their future.

The good news is that your career is a much bigger picture than just your exam results, and there are multiple ways to achieve your goals.

As Churchill said, “Success is not final; failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts”.

Our Career Advisors are available to have these conversations with you. Book an appointment here or email us at careers@canterbury.ac.nz.
