Support Network

UCIC Support Network

At UCIC, we've got your back - Our support network ensures a seamless transition to university-level study, offering a range of services tailored to your needs.

Disability Support

At UCIC, inclusivity is a top priority. We're committed to equal opportunities for all students, fostering a teaching and learning environment that adapts to diverse needs. If you have special requirements, let us know and we can make the necessary accommodations and guarantee your supported success.

We encourage students to share details about their disabilities and special needs during the application and enrollment process. The sooner we have information on your requirements, the better we can assess your support needs, ensuring success in your chosen program.

Our commitment extends to maintaining a learning environment that respects privacy, promotes dignity, and raises awareness of students' needs and rights. UCIC stands ready to make reasonable accommodations throughout your studies, ensuring everyone has equal access to a supportive and enriching learning experience.

Student Activities

Join the fun! UCIC Student Services plan exciting excursions, sports matches, and group morning teas throughout the academic terms. Make memories and new friends.

Under 18 Students

For our students under 18, we follow specific policies to ensure compliance with the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. Our Student Welfare Officer is here to help. Our commitment is to guarantee comprehensive care throughout their studies in New Zealand.

These policies are specifically designed to meet the unique needs of under-18 students, and cover accommodation, support, and ongoing monitoring.

Any proposed changes to accommodation and welfare arrangements should be discussed with our dedicated Student Welfare Officer, ensuring a smooth and supportive transition. Your well-being is our priority at UCIC.
