Study abroad

Travel, experience a new culture, and maybe even learn a new language while earning credits toward your Waterloo degree.

Waterloo offers more than 140 exchanges in over 35 countries, including Australia, Germany, France, Mexico, Norway, and South Korea to name a few.

  • 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.
  • The exchange enables you to study in another country and there are no commitments beyond that.
