The University of Canterbury (UC) was founded in 1873 by scholars from Oxford and Cambridge. It is in Christchurch, the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand.

Christchurch lies between the South Pacific Ocean and the Southern Alps, giving students at UC access to all the amenities of a cosmopolitan, international city while allowing them to still be just a few minutes from beaches and the ocean and within an hour’s drive of alpine mountains, national parks, ski fields, rivers, and wineries.
