About Program

Established in 1873 by scholars of Oxford and Cambridge, the University of Canterbury is ranked amongst the top 3% of universities in the world. If you are interested in hiking, snow sports, or outdoor adventure, prepare for Canterbury to steal your heart and fill up your Instagram feed.

IFSA students have access to the full course catalog, but there are special opportunities to participate in community based learning, an internship, or project-based learning opportunity. The Strengthening Communities through Social Innovation course integrates up to 30 hours of community service and builds on the community spirit of Canterbury’s Student Volunteer Army. Interns work with a local New Zealand organization or business on a special project, completing approximately 75 hours of work and earning credit. In BSNS290 Enterprise in Practice, you have the option to work with a local business or start-up venture, applying your skills to a practical project and earning credit.

This program is currently not being promoted on Go Overseas by its provider. Check with IFSA (Institute for Study Abroad) for the most up-to-date information regarding the status of this program.
