How To Apply

Step One

Self-register for the Laurier International Opportunities Course on MyLearningSpace and learn more about our program offerings. 

Step Two

Submit the required application documents to Laurier International by the required deadline(s). If your application is in order and you are accepted, we will contact you with an offer letter with more information about the next steps. 

Step Three

Complete the required forms and waivers. When your forms are submitted, we will then nominate you to the host university.

Step Four

Once you have been nominated, you will fill out the specific application for your host university and submit your application documents directly to them by their deadline.

Note: Your acceptance to the Laurier Short-term Summer Abroad Program does not guarantee your acceptance to the specific host university.

Step Five

The host university will send you an acceptance letter and may require additional documents or information which you are required to submit by their deadlines. When you have been accepted, you will be required to complete the pre-departure modules which you will find on the Laurier International Opportunities MLS course.

We recommend that you do not book your air tickets until you have received your official acceptance from the host university.

Step Six

If your program is for credit (category A), you will need to meet with your academic advisor to complete the Course Credit Transfer Agreement (CCTA) form. This form matches your courses abroad with the credits you will receive on your Laurier transcript.

If your program is on a Letter of Permission (category C), you need to submit the Letter of Permission request form

Off You Go!

After completing all your paperwork, your travel preparations are up to you. You'll be responsible to book your flight, arrange your accommodations, visit a travel clinic, purchase travel health insurance, arrange for a visa or study permit if required, get your passport if you haven't already got one, and many more things.

You'll find a lot of guidance for your preparations in the “Laurier International Opportunities” My Learning Space course and we'll also be here to answer your questions or point you in the right direction.
