New Virtual Exchange this Summer

Get ahead with your degree with a top Business School in Europe!

International experience doesn’t stop with the closure of the borders. UC’s Global Exchange partners, Audencia Business School (a triple-crown accredited Business School) and WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management (#1 German Business School for degree programs) are offering virtual exchange courses this summer.

These exchanges give you the incredible opportunity to take virtual (online) study and work with students from around the world for a short period during the NZ Summer. Just like a normal exchange programme, you pay only UC tuition fees and the credits you gain from WHU or Audencia are recognised by the UC Business School.

  • Get ahead with your degree this summer
  • Study with a top Business School in Europe
  • Pay UC tuition fees, get an international experience
  • Gain credits approved by UC Business School
