Going abroad can add value to your degree, help you learn a new language, develop skills, make new friends, and expand your world view.
Extend your experience beyond the classroom with 100+ host schools around the world to choose from. Unlike exchanges you might be familiar with in high school, you aren't paired with a student who then comes to visit you in Canada. You can spend one or two terms on exchange or studying abroad – even if you’re in co-op!
Visit the Student Success Office website to learn about different ways of studying abroad.
