Student Experience

During two weeks in Denmark, we experienced great moments and valuable lessons together. We learned things we would never have known if we hadn’t stepped out of our comfort zone and leaped at that opportunity. [...]

Throughout this trip, we learned many interesting things about the beers and their characterization, we tasted the fresh delish beers, took tons of pictures, made new friends, experienced European lives, and got to know one another better. I am thankful that Seneca, Faculty-Led Program Abroad, and BAA put their best efforts into making this trip unforgettable. This is such an amazing experience that we can never have anywhere else!

Traveling students must adhere to all jurisdictional guidelines and/or regulations of their host country and host institution. All accepted students are responsible for ensuring they meet the entry and exit requirements of their destination country. This information is subject to change at any time.

Seneca relies on the Government of Canada’s (GOC) Travel Advice and Advisories and the associated risk level for each destination to assess whether students should engage in an overseas activity. While we make every effort to prepare students for a successful trip overseas, circumstances may arise that are beyond our control.

Students who accept to participate on a global learning opportunity must accept as a condition of participation the possibility that the program may be cancelled or terminated early due to concerns over the safety and security of students. If cancellation or termination occurs, we will refund any payments you have made and withdraw any disbursed grants. Participants may encounter additional and unexpected financial and academic implications. Seneca will work to mitigate negative implications to the best of its ability. 

International Students are required to meet with an immigration specialist to ensure their program of study and/or study permit will not be negatively impacted by travelling abroad. This must take place as soon as possible in the application process. Immigration specialists can be reached at theservicehub@senecacollege.ca
