Imagine having the opportunity to study in Europe, Asia or even Latin America for one or two terms. The International Office’s exchange program gives you the chance to discover new cultures and languages and gain new perspectives on the world, while earning credits towards your uOttawa degree! You even receive a mobility scholarship worth $1,000 per term. A pretty amazing opportunity, right?

If your cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is at least 5.0 and you’ll have completed at least 24 credits by February 1, 2016, you may be eligible to participate in an exchange during the 2016–17 academic year.
