The University of Canterbury currently has opportunities for international students to gain university credits by participating in exciting placements in the city of Christchurch. As part of the Professional and Community Engagement (PACE) program, hosted in the College of Arts, students are able to take part in a wide range of projects across the city. 

CU have a number of US students on the Study Abroad program working in areas including media and communications, sustainability, urban gardens, local government, public health, forestry and water management, urban development, public arts and in the rapidly expanding social entrepreneurial and tech sector.  As Christchurch rebuilds there are many opportunities for students to apply their skills and knowledge, not only in the rebuilding of a city, but in reimagining what a 21st century city could be.

As part of their internationalization of the campus and UC graduates the University is also expanding international internship opportunities for UC students. They have arranged internships across the globe, including Europe, Thailand, China, North America and India. UC is now actively looking for potential partners and organizations to host their students that cover a wide range of disciples at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
