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.

Cultural Excursion Opportunities

Cultural excursion opportunities are posted as they become available. For more information, contact Laurier International at


  • 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.

How to Apply

  1. Self-register for the Student Exchange Program course on MyLearningSpace (MyLS) to learn more about our program offerings. Programs offered in summer 2019 will be posted in late fall 2018 and January 2019.
  2. Submit the required application documents to Laurier International by the required deadline(s) indicated for the program. If your application is in order and you are accepted, we will contact you with an offer letter, which will include more information about the next steps. The last possible date to apply for all 2019 summer abroad experiences is March 1, 2019.
  3. Complete the required forms and waivers. When these forms are submitted, we will nominate you to the host institution.
  4. Once you have been nominated, fill out the specific application for your host institution and submit your application documents directly to them by their deadline. Note: Your acceptance to the Student Exchange Summer Cultural Excursions program does not guarantee your acceptance to a specific host institution.
  5. The host institution will send you an acceptance letter. The host institution may also require additional documents or information, which they will request at this time and which you are required to submit by their deadlines. When you are accepted, you will be required to complete the pre-departure information modules in the Laurier Travel Preparation MyLS course.
