University of Canterbury was established in 1873 as Canterbury College. Housed in graceful stone buildings on a central city block, it was dependent for survival on rents from high country farms with which it had been endowed by the Canterbury Provincial Council. It was set up on the Oxbridge model with one major difference: women students were admitted at the beginning.
Canterbury offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in 50 disciplines starting from accountancy to zoology. It has a number of specialist research centers and operates five major field stations at Kaikoura, Mt John (University Observatory), Cass, Westport and Harihari.
Around 12,000 students are enrolled and each year about 3000 students graduate, 650 of them with higher degrees. The University has retained links with the old town site, now home to the Christchurch Arts Centre, using it as the starting point for graduation processions each year.
