Orientation is the beginning of your journey at UCIC. It introduces you to a new study environment, a new country, and a new way of life. Attendance is mandatory for all new students.
UCIC offers the Foundation Studies Certificate, a programme that, upon successful completion, leads to the first year of bachelor degree programmes at the University of Canterbury.
Additionally, UCIC provides University Transfer Programmes (UTPs) in Engineering, Commerce, and Science. UTPs are equivalent to the first year of the relevant bachelor degree from UC, paving the way for students to enter the second year of the bachelor degree programmes at the University of Canterbury.
Orientation at UCIC is a crucial step for all new students. It involves:
Bring your UCIC Offer Letter, passport, current address, and contact details. If you haven't provided a certified copy of your academic and English transcripts, bring them for enrollment.
