Opportunities Abroad

Laurier's global reputation is elevated by the expansive international collaborations in which faculty and students participate. The office of Global Engagement supports Laurier’s mission to challenge students to “become engaged and aware citizens of an increasingly complex world.” We do this by providing opportunities and guidance to build knowledge, skills and insights gained through academic and cultural immersion through studying and living abroad.

To advance this mission, a number of opportunities abroad are provided to inspire students to think creatively and globally, and to challenge themselves intellectually and personally by venturing beyond their cultural and linguistic zones comfort zones through study abroad.

Laurier students have the choice of participating in education abroad opportunities as short as a week and as long as one to two semesters. Engagement through these opportunities spans from extracurricular to curricular and independent to group travel. Destinations vary from locations in Asia, Australia, the Americas, Africa and Europe. New opportunities are developed every year so that students can continue to participate and challenge themselves throughout their time at Laurier.
