HOW TO START A GLOBAL LEARNING ABROAD OPPORTUNITY

 

Step 1: Explore global learning abroad opportunities 

There are four main types of global learning abroad opportunities:

  • Faculty-Led Program Abroad: Join a group of Seneca students for a two to four-week opportunity to explore the world and expand your learning beyond the classroom with the guidance of a Seneca faculty member. 
  • Summer Abroad: A two to four-week summer school led by Seneca's partner institution abroad. Students can take a course abroad, earn academic credits for their Seneca program, and spend a summer exploring the world!
  • Semester Exchange: Study abroad for a semester at Seneca's partner institution, experience the culture and learn from the locals. Students will earn the credits for their Seneca program.
  • International Work Experience: Gain a competitive edge by completing work experience abroad. 

International students must speak with an immigration specialist to ensure the opportunity does not impact their program of study and/or study permit. Please do this as soon as possible by contacting theservicehub@senecapolytechnic.ca

Step 2: Review the global learning opportunity details

Visit the opportunity individual webpage to learn about costs, accommodation options, eligibility requirements, the course(s) you will complete, application deadline and more.
