University of Canterbury – New Zealand
The University of Canterbury (UC) offers excellent study, cultural, sporting and travelling experiences as part of a Teacher Education, Study Abroad, Undergraduate and Graduate study for Canadian and International students.
All Universities represented by CANTEACH have been visited and specifically chosen for their location, program, academic reputation and lifestyle.
The following Universities in New Zealand are represented and promoted by CANTEACH:
University of Canterbury – College of Education; Primary & Secondary – Christchurch (February start; 1 year program)
$3,000 – $4,000 Scholarship available for all CANTEACH students at UC.
All of my students who inquire about Teachers College in Australia or New Zealand are attending the University of Canterbury. This is for a few reason:
- UC has an excellent program.
- UC has a 1 year program for both Primary and Secondary (Australia has gone to a 2 year program for both).
- UC has great support for my students from UC and myself as I live in Christchurch
- I pick you up at the airport when you arrive
- I help you sent up temporary/short term accommodation at UC before you depart Canada
- I help you get a bank account when you arrive
- I have an office at UC Wheki 252 and hold office hours and am reachable 24/7 via cell/mobile, email, facebok and messenger when you are applying and attending.
- UC attends my CANTEACH University visits to Canada/ON twice per year in March and October. UC is the only New Zealand University that supports CANTEACH and CANTEACH students coming to Canada each and every year to meet CANTEACH students, parents and the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) since 2001 (my first visit to Canada for this purpose).
- Likely the most important is that UC has a CANTEACH Scholarship of approx. 3-4000.00 NZD Scholarship for every CANTEACH student that attends UC. This is a marketing Scholarship to be more competitive for students to attend UC in NZD over other NZD options and elsewhere abroad.
