JAPA students win fully-funded study tours to Japan

Five students in the Elementary Japanese Course have been selected to participate in a fully-funded two-week study programme in Japan by the North Asia Centre of Asia-Pacific Experience (CAPE).

The programme was open to Aotearoa New Zealand students by competitive application and five of the 15 students selected were first year UC JAPA students. The students will have the opportunity to travel to the Ishikawa Prefecture to study the Japanese language and culture between November and October.

Congratulations to Chris Langridge, Daniel Price, Andy Simmonds, Rosara Harris and Timothy Sullivan. We would like to wish them all the best for their stay in Japan.

Extended deadline for Student Exchange applications

Did assignments get in the way of your Student Exchange application? Great news, the deadline to apply for the UC Student Exchange Programme in Semester 2 2019 has been extended to Friday 21 September.

The UC Student Exchange programme gives you the opportunity to study for a semester or a year at one of UC’s partner universities worldwide as part of your UC degree.

With over 60 partner universities around the globe, you can choose to study in some amazing locations including Beijing, Singapore, Spain, France, United Kingdom, United States of America and many more.

  • Pay tuition fees to UC, get an international experience
  • Travel and see new places
  • Study at some of the most prestigious universities for teaching and research around the world
  • Meet new people and develop life-long friendships around the world
  • Credit applied to your UC degree (subject to approvals from appropriate departments and Colleges)
  • Receive UC’s economy airfare offer (conditions apply)

UCSA 2019 Exec President Sam Brosnahan spent a semester at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics and believes anyone whose degree programme offers the chance to go on exchange should do it.

‘Go on exchange! Anywhere around the world, but in particular choose somewhere outside your comfort zone. Go somewhere with a different language and culture to New Zealand because you’ll learn so many new skills and appreciate different cultures.’

Exchange opportunities including at Sciences Po Paris

Did you know you can spend a semester on exchange at one of over 60 exchange partners (including Sciences Po Paris) as part of your degree?

With courses available in both English and French, the Sciences Po Paris exchange is a great option for students with limited or no background in French. For students who have a level of French language, this is a fantastic opportunity to become immersed in the culture and lifestyle, while further developing your language skills!

Through the UC Student Exchange Programme, you can have the unique opportunity to study at partner universities throughout the world in amazing locations like China, Singapore, Spain, France, UK, USA and many more. The great thing about UC Student Exchange is that you pay UC tuition fees and do not pay tuition fees at the partner university. We are also offering economy return airfares to eligible students.*

The application deadline for most exchanges in Semester One 2019 is coming up on 31 May 2018, so don’t delay! For all information, including entry requirements, how to apply and a full list of exchange partners, visit the outgoing exchange website.
