students with suitcasesOver 50% of our Global Business and Digital Arts students pursue a term abroad either in their first term of third year (3A) or first term of fourth year (4A).


In order to be eligible for an exchange, your cumulative Major Average (MAV) must be at least 70% and you must have completed a minimum of two years of university studies.

*Students begin the Go Abroad process in second year (2A).

Go Abroad Opportunities

Third Year
If you want to go in 3A, all study abroad and exchange opportunities offered by the Faculty of Arts are available to you, providing the semesters line up with our own. In addition, here is a list of schools that previous GBDA students have attended and courses they have taken. This can help you determine a school you might be interested in.

Fourth Year
If you are going abroad in 4A, you are only permitted to consider our recommended exchange partners (PDF) to mitigate conflicts with the timeline of mandatory internships.

The Process

The GBDA Go Abroad process is a collaboration facilitated between the Stratford School, the Student Success Office and your host university.  Please refer to the following information regularly.
