MAINZ Christchurch Campus

MAINZ Christchurch is a friendly campus that offers you specialised training in accredited, recognised programmes. Our facilities are well equipped to offer programmes in Audio Engineering, Live Sound & Event Production and DJ & Electronic Music Production.

Christchurch has a strong tradition of live and recorded music making.

The city has a cutting-edge music scene which is historically noted for its opportunity, creativity and innovation. The live music venues provide a base for established artists, and also showcase new and emerging talent.

As Christchurch develops, following an unprecedented rebuild, it is establishing itself as the country's most dynamic place to study, work and live. The latest infrastructure is complemented by up-to-date technology, modern new-builds with a strong emphasis on safety and a thriving artistic community. 

MAINZ's High St Campus is in the heart of this evolving city. It has been refurbished with recording studios, computer labs and a wide range of specialist equipment. There is also a live sound space at King Edward Terrace, 15 minutes from the city centre, that provides a modern and purpose-fit audio production complex.
