Summer Semester

Opportunities to study abroad aren’t limited to the academic year. Study at any of Laurier's exchange partner institutions that offer summer programs, where you can earn credits towards your Laurier degree while still paying your Laurier tuition. These opportunities are a great way to build international skills and experience, particularly if you’re not able to go on exchange for a term or a full year. 

Students from all facultuies can apply to study abroad during the summer semester. These study abroad terms can be from one to six weeks long and you'll earn the equivalent 0.5 - 1.0 credits. A full term abroad for 2.5 credits isn't available during the summer semester.

Applications for summer semester exchange are submitted to Laurier International.

Summer cultural excursions are also available. These excursions are not-for-credit and instead focus on cultural immersion and engagement. 

2022 Summer Semester Exchange Program

We are currently planning for summer semester exchange opportunities to be available for summer 2022. 

Summer semester exchange opportunities for 2022 will be posted here in late December or early January, giving you several months to plan for exchange. 

February 14, 2022 update: Applications no longer accepted for exchange in summer 2022.

To study abroad on a summer semester exchange, you will first need to watch an exchange information session. You can access the information session recording by self-registering for the Student Exchange Program course on MyLS, or through Journey (see "announcements".)

2021 Summer Semester Exchange Program Update

Laurier International has made the difficult decision to cancel in-person 2021 summer semester exchange for outgoing students. This includes all short-term summer abroad exchanges that begin in May, June, July and August 2021, lasting one to three weeks for the equivalent of 0.5 or 1.0 Laurier credits.

Virtual summer semester exchange opportunities may be available. Please contact for more information.

Summer Semester Exchange Information

Opportunities to study abroad during the summer semester will be posted as they become available. We are working towards in-person summer semester exchange being available for summer 2022.
