Students prefer UCIC for its fast track degree pathway. Students are taught in small classes with greater personal attention from the lecturers and learn on the campus of a world class institution that offers a unique academic experience in New Zealand. Students select from 3 University Transfer Programmes: Commerce, Engineering and Science. On successful completion of the UTP students transfer into the second year of the relevant degree - the Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Engineering (Hons).
Canterbury stretches from ocean to the Alps, and is a land of plains and peaks. It is a place of variety and innumerable attractions.

Within two hours of an international airport, you can ski, play golf, bungy jump, go whitewater rafting, mountain biking, wind surfing, whale watching, and visit world-class vineyards and gardens. Where else in the world can you do that?

A must-see is New Zealand’s highest peak, Aoraki Mount Cook. Go hiking in Arthur’s Pass National Park or just wander around the picturesque bays and villages of Banks Peninsula. And then there’s New Zealand's second-largest city, Christchurch known as 'The Garden City'.

Christchurch is a beautiful city where you can cycle alongside the river, stay in good hotels and indulge in fine sophisticated dining, and a city where, just 15 minutes from the centre, you can scramble up mountain bike tracks or ride a wave at a surf beach.
