Call for S22 Field School Proposals

CIP is looking for academic departments and faculty to offer 2-6 week international field schools in summer 2022. Fields schools are based on a collaborative partnership that brings faculty expertise and collegial connections together with CIP’s experience in financial and risk management, and a central online application system. Essentially, departments provide the academic content and teaching, and CIP assists with logistics and some supportive funding. The deadline for proposals is Wednesday, June 23, 2021.

Cancellation of Outbound F21 Study Abroad Programs

On Wednesday, April 28 the Centre for International Programs made the decision to cancel the Fall 2021 exchange programs. As always, the health and safety of our students is our main priority.

Cancellation of Incoming F21 Exchange Program

Unfortunately, due to Canadian travel restrictions and a lack of space in our residence system, we are unable to receive exchange students for the fall 2021 semester. We hope to resume incoming exchange in January 2022 and any incoming exchange student that would like to defer their exchange to that time, should contact the international office at thier home institution to see if that is possible. 
We are sorry that we won't be able to accept any students this fall, but we hope that students have a successful semester at their home universities. 

Summer 2021 programs will not be running

After much consideration, the University of Guelph is cancelling face-to-face exchange and other study abroad programs for Summer 21 (incoming and outbound). Our students will therefore not be able to participate in any short-term summer programs offered by our partners, and will not be able to go on exchange to Australia, New Zealand or Fiji where the semester starts in July.

Faculty Mobility Program applications open

The Faculty Mobility Program aims to increase the number of institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between Canadian and non-Canadian institutions eligible under the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP). These agreements are created between colleges, technical or vocational institutions and universities in Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Holiday Office Closure

The CIP office will close on Friday, December 20th at 4:30 pm and will re-open on Thursday, January 2nd at 8:30 am.

We hope that you have a wonderful holiday break, where ever you may be in the world!
