Study in Christchurch

All the information you need about studying in Christchurch as an international student.

Why study in Christchurch?

Christchurch is an exciting modern city located on New Zealand’s South Island. It’s the largest city on the island and is considered to be one of the country’s main centers of education. It’s home to several top universities making it an attractive option for international students.

It is a city in transition following the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, which has resulted in many exciting new developments. There’s everything you’d want as an international student, including an abundance of parks and green space, cinemas, theatres, sports venues, and live music performances.

Christchurch is regarded as one of the most ‘English’ cities in New Zealand and is also known for its safety. It’s also a popular city for cyclists, with a network of cycle paths making it easy to get around.

For travelling further afield, Christchurch is served by Christchurch Airport, which offers flights to a range of local destinations including Brisbane, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Sydney, as well as North Island cities like Auckland and Wellington.
