University of Canterbury Rā Tōmene / Open Day – Thursday 9 July 2020

To ensure the safety of our students, staff and visitors, UC’s Open Day | Rā Tōmene will run a little differently this year. On 9 July, Rā Tōmene | Open Day 2020 will be held online. Our new virtual experience will allow you to enjoy all the highlights of our on-campus event, from the comfort of your home. We know there is no replacing the experience of Open Day | Rā Tōmene from our Ilam Campus however, and we look forward to hosting you later in the year, once it’s safe for everyone to be together again.

More information on how you can join us for Open Day | Rā Tōmene online will be shared very soon.
