Review

Attending University of Canterbury is one of the best experiences I've ever had. They make it so easy to integrate into the university life with clubs. The clubs accept exchange students with open arms. The clubs make it fun. There are over 100 clubs to chose from with a wide variety of subject matter.
Also the prefect school for the outdoor enthusiast. Skiing isn't in your backyard but it's only 2 hours away. It's accessible and many other students are trying to go. On top of that surfing is so so so close. fly fishing is exceptional. Te backpacking opportunities within a 8 hour drive are limitless.
Its a smallish campus so its easy to make. friends and see them around. The only this is often the friends that are made re other exchange students because the accommodation is segmented into kiwi students and students from abroad. This is a blessing an a curse. It makes it a streamlined experience, but loses some of the authenticity.
Honestly the academics are fine. nothing to brag about and there are so many options of classes its great. Nothing to complain about.
Overall great experience! Go to UC!

How can this program be improved?
More opportunities to live somewhere off campus or maybe in another hall. Being stuck in the place with all the other exchange students often only allows relationships to form with others who are abroad.
Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
