Commerce International Exchange Partners

The University of Canterbury has over 50 partner universities around the world. Most of these are open to Commerce students but some exceptions apply. Some partner universities may require knowledge of a language other than English.

Our Commerce partners were chosen because they offer:

  • A great selection of courses in a wide range of Commerce subjects
  • Courses in English, so you will be able to study with limited or no knowledge of the local language. Zhejiang Gongshang University is an exception as it offers only a language programme.

Gansu International Fellowship Programme

The Gansu International Fellowship Programme, aims to open Gansu Province wider to the outside world, and to explore exchanges and cooperation abroad in the fields of economy, trade, science and technology, education and culture.

In 2014, two of our graduates, Matt Evans and Kate Mitchell (pictured left) spent two months (1 September - 31 October) travelling in China. Based at Lanzhou University with delegates from 11 other countries, they attended lectures, went on field trips and had a number of opportunities to interact with the local community.
