Program Overview

Situated between the mountains and the sea, Christchurch is known as the Garden City of New Zealand. A mid-sized, cosmopolitan city, with a population of 300,000, Christchurch takes pride in its multicultural heritage. Christchurch attracts top national and international arts, music, and sporting entertainment, and is renowned for its many annual festivals and events. The University of Canterbury is located close to the city center with easy access to all that the city, and the region, has to offer.

Traveling from Christchurch to nearby beach, mountain, backcountry, and well-known sightseeing destinations such as Mount Cook and Queenstown is encouraged for visiting students. Flanked by beautiful beaches on one side, hills on another and just 90 minutes away from the nearest ski area, Christchurch is within easy reach of the great outdoors for climbing, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, hang gliding, whitewater rafting, sailing, surfing and more. The surrounding Southern Alps provide much of those opportunities; and parks, local golf courses, and sandy beaches provide endless year-round outdoor activities.
