After surviving several earthquakes in 2011, Christchurch is no longer the quaint town it used to be but, as the country’s third largest city, reinventing itself as a thriving community based on innovation and design. The University of Canterbury is known for its comprehensive offerings and engineering programs while Lincoln University, just 30 minutes away, is a leader in environmental studies, research and sustainability. Additionally, as the gateway to the South Island, students are close to some of the world’s most stunning natural beauty and adrenaline-inducing activities.
The semester begins with an exciting 5-day Orientation Excursion in adventurous Queenstown on New Zealand's South Island where TEAN's in-country staff guide students through orientation sessions and an array of activities, including exploring Maori culture more deeply, jet boating along the Dart River or discovering the stunning Milford Sound.
