All international students must complete their enrolment in person with the following documentation:

  • Current visa - If you have a current student visa which needs to be renewed for your 2018 study, you will need to complete the UC Student Visa Application form. Please also refer to the checklist below for any additional documentation that will be required eg proof of funds for living expenses
    Please note that if you hold a Visitor or Work Visa you must apply for your Student Visa directly with Immigration NZ and have your Student Visa issued before you can complete your enrolment at UC. If you do not have any current visa you should make contact with Immigration NZ or email student-visa@canterbury.ac.nz. See Visas for more information.
  • Evidence of insurance - UC has an insurance policy available on campus. See Insurance for Studying in New Zealand for more information

It can take some time to enrol and you are likely to have to stand in queues (the university has to check every student's passport and insurance certificate to meet legal requirements).
