    THE ROLE OF UNIVERSITY OF CANTERBURY IN MY LIFE

    My university provided me with a good learning platform. With their extended help as well as with the support from my teachers, I was able to learn a lot which surely will help me a lot in my future. I applied to the university with the help of an application called My UC.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The tools and the rigor topics of Economics were included in my course curriculum. I was also required to indulge in a broad range of analytical and business skills and took the course that applied economic reasoning. Since the focus of the course was on managerial economics and informed decision making I was able to understand the things better.
