Global Engagement and Exchanges

The Global Engagement team will continue to host virtual programming and events throughout winter semester. Even though student mobility has been impacted by travel restrictions, there are still opportunities to expand your intercultural learning through our International at Home programming.

We also encourage you to meet virtually with a Global Engagement Student Ambassador (GESA) to discuss more ways you can be globally engaged.

Winter 2021 Student Exchange Program Update

In light of Laurier’s announcement to continue remotely for winter 2021, we will now only accept inbound exchange students in a remote context. Information for both outbound exchange students and inbound exchange students is available on our FAQ page.

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.

Financial Assistance

There are a variety of internal and external scholarships and awards available to help you offset the cost of going abroad, including scholarships offered by host institutions. Be sure to review them to see if you're eligible!
