International agreement process

Waterloo International’s Agreements Team manages a strategic and outcomes-oriented process to steward each institutional level international agreement, including Joint Academic Program Agreements, Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs), Strategic Partnerships Agreements, and Student Mobility Agreements. 

Waterloo International works in close collaboration with Faculties, Academic Support Units and other internal stakeholders to develop the appropriate agreement instrument in alignment with desired programming/activities, outcomes and institutional regulations.

The timeline for stewarding each international agreement varies and is dependent on the complexity of the agreement, response times of our partners, consultations with our team and university stakeholders, internal review procedures, as well as other factors. An agreement typically takes 3 months to 1 year to assess, consult, draft, negotiate and sign.

To initiate the international agreement process for any new partnerships, start by submitting a partnership request.
