The Erskine Programme office administers Visiting Erskine Fellowships, Visiting Canterbury Fellowships, the Cambridge/Canterbury Exchange Programme, the Oxford/Canterbury Exchange Programme and Erskine Grants.
The bequest by John Angus Erskine enables up to 70 visiting senior academics to lecture at UC each year. Around 25 UC academics are awarded grants from the bequest each year to travel to overseas institutions. Erskine Programme Fellowships are primarily teaching fellowships, not research, and intended for more senior academics.
Departments not eligible for the Erskine Programme are eligible for the Canterbury Fellowships Programme which is also administered by the Erskine office.
We welcome distinguished academic visitors from around the world every year across a range of disciplines.
The bequest from Jack Erskine, our distinguished alumni, funds our prestigious academic exchange/visitors programme.
Information for UC staff about outgoing academic exchanges including links to all forms and our honour roll.
