Global Engagement and Exchanges

Whether you’re an international or a Canadian student, Laurier International can enhance your international and intercultural skills. Through global engagement programming, Laurier International also manages academic exchanges and other opportunities to travel abroad, such as internships, volunteering, field courses and more.

Go Abroad

Take your Laurier experience global! Earn Laurier credits and pay Laurier tuition, all while studying on exchange at one of more than 60 university partners around the world. You can go for one semester, two semesters, or just for the summer

Want a shorter experience abroad? Go with a Laurier group on field courses that take you to the places you're learning about. There are also plenty of opportunities for you to work or volunteer abroad.

Here on Exchange?

Welcome to Laurier! We love welcoming exchange students and have plenty of international student supports in place to help you have a great Canadian academic experience.

Learn About the World at Laurier

A global education can start at home. Whether it's sharing another culture's food with new friends, watching international films, taking our intercultural certificate program, or enjoying the events of the annual International Education Week, our International @ Home global engagement programming can take you around the world – without the carbon emissions.
