The University of Suffolk has successfully secured a partnership with the University of New Brunswick in Canada.
Students and staff will be able to benefit from an exchange programme, called Erasmus+, thanks to European Union funding. It is the first exchange partnership for the University in North America and will span two years.
Izabela Hutchins, Student Opportunities Manager and Erasmus+ Coordinator, said, “We are pleased to secure the funding for the University to support mobility to and from Canada for students and staff. We look forward to seeing the enhancement of the student experience, as well as engagement with new fields of international teaching and research.”
“Our project has received a high score from independent assessors in the EU Commission who recognised the impact in strengthening internationalisation, increasing mobility participation and broadening the perspectives of participants.”
At the University of Suffolk, students have benefitted from periods of study in 19 countries including Spain, Greece, Italy, Belgium, Romania, Finland, Sweden and Germany.
