Welcome to Canterbury International College (CANIC).

We have been involved as an NZQA registered PTE since 2003. Initially we provided academic courses in pre-university subjects including English at all levels. Over the years we developed strong links with several local high schools and our students attended senior NCEA courses. Our students had a high success rate and most went on to further academic study at NZ universities.

Currently we provide courses in English language from beginners to advanced, creating pathways to high school courses, pre-university courses and full university study. Our courses are flexible and individually designed. We have experienced, dedicated and caring teachers and admin staff who give excellent support to our students.

Christchurch is the big city in the South Island of New Zealand. It is modern, safe and exciting with the chance to explore the beautiful South Island’s towns, lakes, ski fields and mountains just a few hours away.

If you decide to study with us, you will be part of a wonderful learning environment and you will have laid a strong foundation for your future career plans.
