Summary

Global Pathways to New Zealand:

Study options
Students who complete 3 years of successful study towards a bachelor’s degree at SHNU will be admitted to the University of Canterbury Certificate of Proficiency. Successful graduates will be admitted to the University of Canterbury Professional Master of Urban Resilience and Renewal (3 years + 1 year + 1 year).
New Zealand Qualification
In the 21st century, cities and urban areas are facing increasing challenges associated with flood risk, coastal erosion, and sea level rises. In many growing areas these are coupled with challenges of demographic growth and urban spread.
While there are many university postgraduate degrees that focus on local planning legislation, there are no other identifiable programmes that focus specifically on how communities respond to challenges that cities are facing today. This programme will be of interest to students wishing to address broader urban issues and engage with communities.
The Master of Urban Resilience and Renewal (MURR) will focus on:
• the urban renewal of Otautahi Christchurch, a city that faces many of these issues as it recovers from the 2010/11 earthquakes
• how communities respond to challenges that cities are facing today
• community engagement with students working with community groups and local government, within compulsory courses and through their chosen research project.
