Internationalize your degree by going on exchange in your 3A or 3B term (or 4A for Planning students):

  • Build your network and make new friends from around the world.
  • Step outside your comfort zone to become more independent and self-aware.
  • Set yourself apart in your job hunt by becoming more adaptable and developing the skills employers are looking for.
  • Earn credit towards your degree at Waterloo while exploring another country/region.

Applications for an exchange in Winter and Spring 2023 have closed, but applications for the Fall 2023, Winter 2024 and Spring 2024 will open October 1, 2022
