Introduction

One of New Zealand’s most prestigious institutions, The University of Canterbury was established by scholars from Oxford and Cambridge in 1873. Perhaps best known for its excellent Engineering degrees, Canterbury’s legendary alumni includes Sir Ernest Rutherford, the father of nuclear physics. Current students have opportunities to intern at Google, given the university’s close ties with the company. And to top it all off, the campus is in beautiful Christchurch- NZ’s ‘garden city’. Get inspired.
