Transition programmes get you ready for university study and support you on the journey. They vary in length and are usually scheduled within normal university semester dates.
The STAR at UC programme allows secondary school students from anywhere in New Zealand to enrol in first-year degree-level courses
If you don’t meet the academic or English language requirements, we offer several programmes to get you ready.
UCIC was established following a collaborative agreement between Navitas Limited and the University of Canterbury in 2013.
Preparatory courses are non-credit, catch-up preparatory courses that can help prepare you for first-year degree study.
You need to pay transition programme tuition fees if you undertake the Certificate in University Preparation or a Headstart course.
Check the details of the transition programme you are interested in to see if you are eligible for entry.
