Soon after receiving your offer letter you will receive an email directly from University of Canterbury with your course approvals and instructions on how to pre-enroll. Course registration will be finalized when you arrive on campus.
Course enrollments will not be finalized until students are on campus. The preliminary course form students submit to Arcadia prior to departure does not guarantee approval or enrollment in those courses. There is an add/drop period at the beginning of each semester that allows students to make changes to course enrollments. If you make any changes it is your responsibility to inform your home institution.
If your enrollment is conditional upon entry into a specific course or courses, it is very important that you indicate these requirements at the bottom of the preliminary course form on your Arcadia Passport.
