Student Experience

‘Going on road trips, climbing mountains and finding new spots to enjoy the sunset was a luxurious thing to do back home.In New Zealand, it is now only around the corner! UC has diverse students, majoring in different subjects, so there are many personalities. Being part of the Canterbury Malaysian Student Association (CMSA) gave me so much warmth, to be around with people of familiar tongue and culture. It is often a relief to hang out with them!’

‘I have always wanted to study overseas, and New Zealand has a reputation for being a great place to study and for providing a good quality education. I believe the well established University of Canterbury offers a holistic and enriching educational experience by providing ample opportunities for me to interact with students and academic staff from a variety of cultures from all over the world.’
