Study Abroad at Canterbury - How and when to apply?
Applications for first semester study (Feb-June) should be received by 1 November. Applications for second semester study (July-November) should be received by 1 May.
Download and complete the Study Abroad Application Form (PDF, 150 KB) and post it to us with:
- originals or certified true copies of university (or other acceptable tertiary institution) academic transcripts, which list the courses studied and the grades achieved
- evidence of English language proficiency (if English is not your first language). Students from Sweden, Norway, Germany or Denmark with a pass at a specified level in their final year of high school study may be exempted from a language test.
- Late applications will be processed, but we recommend that you apply by the deadline to allow you time to make the necessary arrangements for studying abroad. Remember that the academic year in New Zealand is usually the reverse of the northern hemisphere year. The US or European first semester will normally approximate the dates of second semester at Canterbury, and the US or European second semester the dates of Canterbury's first. Our long summer recess runs November to February.
