UC7 Bicultural 60UC Bicultural

At UC we are committed to biculturalism. That’s a good thing for Aotearoa New Zealand, and a good thing for you too. As part of this commitment we work with Ngāi Tahu, the tangata whenua in our region. At UC you’ll gain bicultural perspectives and experience in your courses of study through engaging with course content, ideas and activities in your chosen subjects. You can also take specific courses on Māori languageculture, art, and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
