14th Dec, 2018 Feature story:
UC International College (UCIC) celebrated their 5th anniversary this week - and it was a triple whammy!
The college recently signed a new five-year contract with their university partner, the University of Canterbury, located in Christchurch, New Zealand. The anniversary also celebrated the enrolment of their 1,000th student at the college!
Celebrations unfolded at UCIC's newly renovated Alice Candy Building. Staff, teachers, students, local agents and members from the University of Canterbury attended the event to celebrate this great milestone.
"We are delighted to be able to celebrate the arrival of our 1,000th student alongside our 5th anniversary and the resigning of our agreement with the University of Canterbury for a further five years", said Stewart Brougham, UCIC College Director and Principal.
A highlight of the event was an award presention to UCIC's 1,000th student to enrol at the college.
Student numbers at UCIC have increased steadily since the college first opened its doors in 2013. Students have benefited from the supportive teaching model at UCIC which has seen over 90% of graduates transfer to the University.
This year alone over 200 students transferred to the University, adding to the student population on campus and contributing to their successful international growth.
UCIC's 5th anniversary marks an important milestone in its development as a recognised education provider. The anniversary is a reflection of their progress and their strong relationship with the University of Canterbury.
Staff past and present, including the previous College Principal, Peter Cottrell, were acknowledged for their contributions toward the success of students both past and present, and their outstanding student support. Stakeholders and educational partners were also acknowledged for their commitment and continued support of UCIC.
This is truly an important achievement for UCIC! We're looking forward to seeing their student enrolments grow exponentially in the years to come.
