What’s great about a UC Global Exchange?

  • Pay tuition fees to UC, get an international experience
  • Travel and see new places
  • Credits applied to your UC degree (subject to approvals from appropriate departments and Faculties)
  • Enhance your CV with demonstrable international engagement

Tāroia | UC’s Global Exchange programme gives you the unique opportunity to study at one of UC’s partner universities worldwide, as part of your UC degree. The great thing about UC Global Exchange is that you pay your tuition fees to UC and not the partner university, and you can choose to study at some amazing locations around the world, ranging from Denmark, France, to the UK, USA, Spain, Japan, and many more.

Weekly Information Seminars and Drop-in Sessions

Weekly General Information Seminars
If you’re interested in an overseas exchange, the information seminars would be a good place to start. Our seminars will cover the key information you need to know, including an overview of UC’s partner universities, entry requirements, and how to plan and apply for your exchange, etc. You are also welcome to attend if you are only in your first year and plan to go on exchange later in your degree. It’s always a good idea to start planning early.

Information seminars will be held weekly throughout Semester 1. See the full schedule and registration links of the seminars on the UC Global Exchange webpage.

University of California Information Seminar – coming soon
Schedule and registration link for this seminar will be available on UC Global Exchange webpage very soon.

Drop-in Sessions
Want to speak with the team about your application? Come and see us at the Global Exchange drop-in session.

We encourage you to attend one of the weekly information seminars (above) prior to coming to a drop-in session. The information seminar can answer most of your initial questions about the exchange programme. If you have any specific enquiries or further questions, we would be happy to discuss these with you at a drop-in session. See the schedule, venue and register for it on the UC Global Exchange website.

Application deadlines
Don’t miss it – make sure that you check UC Global Exchange webpage to check which application deadlines will apply to you and your selected partner universities.

UC Research Student Publication Prize

We are pleased to inform you about the UC Research Student Publication Prize, which is available to research Master’s and Doctoral candidates who publish their work in leading peer-reviewed publications indexed in Scopus.

The Research Publication Prize was founded in 2021 as the UC Foundation Doctoral Publication Prize, and in 2023, the prize was expanded to include research Master’s students as well. The goal of this prize is to help students develop their research profile, increase the visible research reputation of the University, and encourage them to publish their work in high-quality peer-reviewed journals, book chapters, monographs, or conference proceedings. The prize is a monetary award at a value of $1,000 for articles in publications indexed by Scopus. A student may receive a prize for each eligible publication they publish during their enrolment in a research Master’s or Doctoral programme of studies at UC or for up to 9 months after the submission of their thesis for examination. The prize is paid by direct credit to a recipient’s nominated New Zealand bank account. A condition of acceptance is that a recipient permits announcement and publication of acceptance of the award.

To be eligible for this prize, you must be a UC student who is either enrolled in research Master’s or Doctoral Studies at UC or were enrolled in these programmes and have submitted their thesis for examination within the last 9 months. Additionally, you must be the principal/lead/first/corresponding author of a manuscript, published after 1st January 2023, and have listed your institutional address as the University of Canterbury. Please note that journal articles must be indexed in Scopus, and other types of publication (e.g. book chapters, monographs, conference proceedings) must also be indexed by Scopus. If you are unsure whether your publication is eligible, please enquire at subjectlibrarians@canterbury.ac.nz. If you would like advice or help, please get in touch with your subject librarian (see https://www.canterbury.ac.nz/library/contact-us/subject-librarians/). They can also help you with your ORCID record.

There are six processing rounds per year, and your application will be assessed as part of one of these rounds. This means that you may not receive a response for a month or two after submitting your application. Our Scholarships team will be in touch with you in due course to advise of the outcome of your application. If you are interested in applying for this prize, please note that applications can be made at any time. To apply, you will need to submit your application through UC’s scholarships portal, to access this log into your myUC and click the “apply for a scholarship” link on the left-hand taskbar. Once you are in the scholarship portal search for the UC Research Student Publication Prize to begin your application. Please ensure that you submit one application per publication and include the date of the email/letter when submitting the letter of acceptance from the journal.

We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to showcase your research and contribute to the research reputation of UC. If you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact the Scholarships team at scholarships@canterbury.ac.nz.
