Welcome to the Erskine Programme
The Erskine Programme office administers Visiting Erskine Fellowships, Visiting Canterbury Fellowships, the Cambridge/Canterbury Exchange Programme, the Oxford/Canterbury Exchange Programme and Erskine Grants.
Please note that all Erskine Programme Fellowships are primarily teaching Fellowships and not research Fellowships and are intended for more senior academics.

About the Programme
The University of Canterbury is proud of the magnificent bequest left by a former distinguished student John Angus Erskine. This bequest enables some 70 Visiting Erskine Fellowships to be awarded each year for international visitiors to give lectures to students in those Departments eligible for access to the Bequest. The similar Visiting Canterbury Fellowships Programme provides for a small number of visits to the balance of academic Departments. The bequest also funds up to 25 University of Canterbury academics in eligible Departments to travel to overseas institutions on an Erskine Grant.
