Congratulations on taking the next step towards further study! Applications to enrol into our Postgraduate Certificate in Strategic Leadership are now open for our 15 July start-date. If you're interested in studying later in 2024, or 2025, please sign up for enrolment updates.

When you apply to enrol into a programme with Tuihono UC | UC Online you're applying to Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha | University of Canterbury. This means you'll be part of the University of Canterbury student body, and are eligible for a wide range of support and digital services as detailed here.

Get your documentation ready

Before you start your application to enrol in the Postgraduate Certificate in Strategic Leadership, you'll need to prepare these documents: 

  • Verified evidence of your identity, such as a certified copy of your birth certificate, or a certified copy of the photo page in your passport. There are additional requirements depending on your visa status, or if you have legally changed your name - for more information view full verification requirements.
  • Proof of any academic qualifications, such as a transcript or your UC student ID number if you studied your undergraduate degree with us. If you graduated with a bachelor's degree from another university, you will need to request a digital copy of your transcript through them.
  • Proof of your professional work history, such as a CV or resume, including the years that you previously studied at tertiary institutes. 
  • For international learners: proof of your English language proficiency. 

It's also helpful to have: 

  • Your National Student Number on hand - if you have one. You can locate your number through the NZQA website.
  • Prepared two short paragraphs explaining what interests you about studying this programme, and what you'd like to achieve with this postgraduate certificate. 

How many courses do I choose?

The number of courses you choose to enrol into at this stage depends on if you would like to pay for multiple courses at once, or one-by-one as each new term approaches. All courses added to your enrolment must be paid before the first course starts, so you may only want to add your first course to your enrolment for now, so that you only pay for one term at a time. You can then add your next course as this new term approaches.

Please note: StudyLink Student Loan funding is not currently available - but will be from 2025. 

The courses you will need to search for and select are:

  • MBAD615 - Leading Ourselves (15 July - 15 September 2024)
  • MBAD643 - Leading Change and Decision Making (7 October - 8 December 2024)
  • We will then confirm the rest of your PGCertStratLdrship study later this year.

Please note: the specific course codes to search for are MBAD615 and MBAD643. The correct courses to select will then be shown in the course selector as follows:  MBAD615-24X3 (O) and MBAD643-24X4 (O).
