The Vice Chancellor of the University of Canterbury, Dr Rod Carr, who was visiting Mumbai to sign the Memorandum of Understanding commented that “greater numbers of Indian students are taking up the opportunity to study at UC, with 50% more new students compared to last year. Despite this, Indian students comprise less than 2% of our student body so there is still plenty of capacity for further growth.”
