Welcome to the exciting world of Children’s University. It’s fun!

The Children’s University Canterbury Partnership provides you with exciting free range learning activities outside your day to-day school work, whether that be before school, lunch time, after school, in the school holidays etc. The best part about Children’s University is that it’s voluntary, so you get to choose what activities you would like to do, where, when and how you would like to do them. The things you learn will always be able to be connected to something that you could study at a university, the school for grown-ups.

Validated Children’s University Learning Destinations (the fun places you go to do cool things) all have a Children’s University Learning Destination sticker in the window. You should go in there and participate in the activity, take your Passport to Learning with you and get a stamp for the time you spend learning. The more activities you do, the more hours and stamps you will get in your Passport to Learning, and the closer you will be to graduating.

Once you have collected enough hours you will graduate, where you will be presented with your certificate at a special ceremony, all dressed up in a cap and gown, just like the older university students.

So how do you get involved? Fill in the form above and we will be in touch with your school, because Children’s University all begins there.
