For over 20 years, we have hosted hundreds of study abroad and exchange students from the US and Canada.

Study abroad in Canterbury is run by the American Studies department, and is well respected for its academic rigour.

There’s a friendly atmosphere in the department with many social events including Thanksgiving and Super Bowl night.

Are you a student from the US or Canada?

You can study in Canterbury for a semester as a study abroad student or for a year, usually as an exchange student.

You’ll have the choice to study during either:

  • the fall semester (September-December)
  • the spring semester (January-April)
  • for the whole academic year, which runs from September to June.
