Unfortunately, the Semester Abroad model (group of students spending a semester abroad with a Guelph faculty member) has become increasingly expensive for both students and the institution and student interest has dropped significantly in the last few years. In addition, tightening immigration rules around the world make it difficult for us to have students and professors teaching and learning abroad within the visa frameworks of our host destinations. Because of these and other challenges with this study abroad model, we will not be offering Semesters Abroad after Winter 2019.
If you've loved / are loving your study abroad experience this year and are interested in helping other UofG students have the same awesome opportunity, the Centre for International Programs is currently recruiting for new Peer Helpers for the 2018-19 academic year.
DEADLINES EXTENDED FOR:
Baden-Württemberg, Germany – OBW
Rhône-Alpes, France – ORA
India – OIN
Jiangsu, China - OJS
