Connected to the world

Internationalization is woven into many elements at Waterloo. With a goal of becoming one of the most internationalized universities in Canada, diversity and global connections are encouraged and celebrated.

Waterloo’s culture of embracing international perspectives and experiences attracts some of the world’s most talented students, staff, and faculty. Global connections encompass academic, research, and industry partnerships, international learning through work placements, exchanges, field programs, and co-operative education, as well as a vast network of alumni around the world.

    Collaboration between the University of Waterloo (UW) and the University of the West Indies (The UWI) dates back to 2006, when the two institutions first signed an Engineering research partnership with Wigton Wind Farm Ltd. Since then, we have come a long way. Over the past 16 years, our researchers have engaged on important projects together. Our first Student Mobility Agreement was signed in 2010, and has been consistently renewed since then.
