Summer Cultural Excursions

Step outside your geographic and cultural borders with a cultural excursion abroad this summer! With these opportunities, you will pay tuition directly to the host institution and with certain programs, you will even be able to earn Laurier credits. Make the most of your summer and develop international experience and skills with one of these great opportunities.


  • You must complete 10 Laurier credits to apply.
  • You can participate in both a summer semester abroad and full-term exchange only with specific permission from your department. 
  • If you are graduating in the fall, you can study abroad in the summer. However, if you will be earning Laurier credits while you are abroad, there is no guarantee the credit transfer process will be completed before the deadline to apply to graduate.

Application Process

Each institution and program could have different application processes and requirements. To make sure you have the right information, we have compiled all the details in the Student Exchange Program course in MyLearningSpace (MyLS).

When you self-register for the course, you will have access to information including:

  • required application forms
  • application deadlines
  • admission requirements
  • program options
  • cost information
  • credit information

Pre-Departure Information

Once you have been accepted into your chosen program by the host institution, you will be required to complete the pre-departure information modules in the Student Exchange Program MyLS course.
