Get an international education by spending time abroad

By Concordia University Modified on December 05, 2017

Gain a whole new perspective on the world — and yourself —during your degree


Your university years are a time to seek out exposure to new people, ideas and places. The ultimate way to embrace a whole new world of experiences: travel overseas. At Concordia University, you’ll have plenty of opportunities.

Go on exchange

Journalism graduate Meagan Boisse spent four months at the Danish School of Media and Journalism in Aarhus, Denmark. “One of the motivations behind my decision to study abroad was opening myself up to new, unfamiliar experiences,” she says.

Italian and Spanish major Ornella Antonelli (pictured) did a term at the Università di Bologna in Bologna, Italy, while earning credit towards her degree, thanks to Concordia International.

Concordia’s more than 150 partner universities are located in 35 different countries. The Quebec government offers generous bursaries to help fund students’ international studies.

Do a work term in another country

Many Concordia programs offer Co-op, the chance to complete paid internships during your degree. Anthropology student Andrew Fitzsimmons’ work term took him to Ilulissat Icefjord UNESCO World Heritage Site in Greenland.

Sign up for a school trip

Every year, new members of the Liberal Arts College travel together to New York City for a cultural trip that includes visits to NYC’s museums and the opera. That’s just one example of travel opportunities your program may offer.

Volunteer in East Africa

CEED Concordia facilitates students’ travel to Gulu, Uganda, where they partner with local youth to work on community development projects.

Join a club

Space Concordia (whose members work on satellite design) and the John Molson School of Business’s many student associations often send students to compete against other universities internationally.
